Horrifying global surge in domestic abuse: UN chief

Apr 07, 2020 10:47 IST

In a message released late on Sunday, Guterres said there had been a "horrifying global surge" in domestic violence cases over the past two weeks, with the number of women seeking support services doubling in some countries.
