Convenor of Hear the Children Cry, Betty-Ann Blaine believes that many of the children who were murdered last year were killed as a result of gang violence.

Police statistics for 2007 have revealed that 65 children were murdered last year.

Ms. Blaine believed that children are sometimes killed as a form of retaliation.

She is warning parents to protect their children by not getting involved in criminal activities.

Ms. Blaine said the alarmingly high number of children being killed, is also a reflection of the level of violence in the society.
