Iraq’s new imperial palace

Cluster bombs: a war’s perilous aftermath

‘The scope was extensive and unprecedented in any modern use of these types of cluster weapons’, compared to Kosovo in 1999, Afghanistan in 2001, and Iraq in 2003, says Chris Clark, the program manager for the UN Mine Action Coordination Centre of South Lebanon, in Tyre.
Samer al-Batal writes: Wickedly and gratuitously enough, most of these hit during the final days and hours of the campaign just before the ceasefire came into effect. The last Israeli attack on this country, though over, has yet to claim all its victims as unexploded ordnances still lie about.
