Default Cluster Bombs in Lebanon


Cluster Bombs in Lebanon

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/5299938.stm

The UN's humanitarian chief has accused Israel of "completely immoral" use of cluster bombs in Lebanon.

UN clearance experts had so far found 100,000 unexploded cluster bomblets at 359 separate sites, Jan Egeland said.

He went on to say...

"What's shocking and completely immoral is: 90% of the cluster bomb strikes occurred in the last 72 hours of the conflict, when we knew there would be a resolution," he said.

These bombs are lying in peoples homes and gardens and people are being injured or killed every day. Cluster bombs are not precise weapons. The fact that they were used in civilian areas is a war crime.
