Lebanon: Israel hands over maps of cluster bombs location

Israel has provided the U.N. peacekeepers on Tuesday maps of where it dropped cluster bombs during the summer 2006 war in Lebanon, the UNIFIL force said. "UNIFIL received from the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) today technical strike data and related maps on the cluster munitions fired by the IDF over Lebanon during the 2006 conflict," UNIFIL said in a statement, cited by Reuters. "Technical experts from UNIFIL are currently examining and assessing the data received," it added.

The statement added that UNIFIL will hand over the maps on to the Lebanese army.
