Eradicating weapons that keep on killing

15-04-2009 Film

During the five week conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006, up to 4 million cluster munitions fell on Lebanon. Hundreds of thousands of them failed to explode on impact, contaminating huge swathes of the country and killing hundreds of civilians long after the fighting had stopped. Over several decades, cluster munitions have killed and maimed tens of thousands of people in war-torn countries around the world.
