As the death toll from the cyclone in Myanmar continues to climb, international aid agencies warn of new dangers for the most vulnerable survivors: children. They make up about a third of survivors, and many are orphaned or lost and surrounded by strangers in crowded refugee camps.

David Wightwick of the organization Save the Children talks to Steve Inskeep from Yangon.
