News: Bosnia

Engineers working on reconstruction Ministry of Defence projects in Bosnia, Kosovo and other countries of the former Yougoslavia are at little or no risk of contamination by depleted uranium, an MOD spokesman said this week.

The spokesman said that Nato had not used depleted uranium ammunition against civil targets.
