Children need to be protected from the dangers of the internet, according to a top official of Oman’s Ministry of Social Development.

He was speaking on the occasion of the release of UNICEF’s annual report on the dangers youth face online

“Young people are exposed to all kinds of risks in their daily lives and internet addiction is among them, not to mention its effect on their health because of the inappropriate habits it may produce,” - Lana Al Wreikat, UNICEF
