Bombs prevent return of 200,000 Lebanese
This is very unfortunate. Most of these bomblets were dispersed during the last few days before the cease-fire was to be in effect, according to UN.

Not good.

Bombs prevent return of 200,000 Lebanese

Published: Wednesday, 27 September, 2006, 10:58 AM Doha Time


Experts prepare to safely detonate live bomblets in the southern Lebanese village of Majdal Silm yesterday

BEIRUT: The return home of some 200,000 people displaced by the Israel-Hezbollah war is being held up by hundreds of thousands of unexploded bomblets, the UN refugee agency warned yesterday.

"Displacement is going to continue for many months to come," Arjun Jain of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) told a news conference in Beirut.

From about 1mn people displaced during the war, which cost more than 1,200 lives in Lebanon alone, the return of 200,000 residents of the south faces the lethal obstacle of bomblets sprayed by cluster bomb attacks, he said.

"Now we feel it could take 24 months" because of unexploded ordnance in homes and gardens across villages and towns of the war zone in southern Lebanon that are endangering a return to normal life, Jain said.
