Report says toxic waste is being spread by scrap metal dealers, and
its 'alarming' use in civilian areas during Iraq wars

Cleaning up more than 300 sites in Iraq still contaminated by depleted
(DU) weapons will cost at least $30m, according to a report by a Dutch peace
group to be published on Thursday.

The report, which was funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
warns that the contamination is being spread by poorly regulated scrap metal
dealers, including children. It also documents evidence that DU munitions
fired at light vehicles, buildings and other civilian infrastructure
the Iraqi Ministry of Planning in Baghdad – casting doubt on official
assurances that only armoured vehicles were targeted. "The use of DU in
populated areas is alarming," it says, adding that many more contaminated
sites are likely to be discovered, it says.
