Cluster Bombs Continue to Kill

Cluster bomblets dropped into southern Lebanon by Israel over the summer continue to kill and injure three or four people a day, according to BBC. The UN estimates that there may be up to a million unexploded bomblets still in the region.

According to Landmine Action, about 35% of those killed or injured in southern Lebanon are under the age of 18. The bomblets are also preventing people from farming their land.

It is also possible that Hezbollah used cluster bombs against Israel, though Hezbollah so far denies it.
