AFP and a range of other media outlets were forced to retract their stories after it became clear that a UN expert had mistakenly presented four-year-old cumulative figures as if they were the current total number of migrant children in US detention


The author of the report has clarified that his figures do not represent the number of children currently in migration-related US detention, but the total number of children in migration-related US detention in 2015. Under these circumstances AFP is withdrawing its story.
