*ISLAMABAD - **Pakistan shows United Nations Observer group the evidences of Indian cluster bombs used against civilian population in Azad Jammu and Kashmir.*
*A group of United Nations observers visited on Sunday the areas along the Line of Control affected by the use of cluster ammunition by Indian forces.*
A cluster munition is a form of air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that ejects bomblets. The use of cluster bombs may result in killing and maiming of many civilians due to their wide-area impact.
The Indian forces used their artillery to fire cluster ammunition on the intervening night of July 30 and 31, targeting civilian population across the LoC. According to Geneva Convention, the use of cluster ammunition is prohibited as it poses serious threat to civilians in a conflict.
Members of the UN observer group witnessed the evidence of Indian cluster bombing in different areas of Neelum Valley. They took pictures and met with residents of the affected areas.
