In memory of
12 civilians killed
a child killed by cluster bomb
during night of October 29/30, 2001
in the village of Jebrael (Jibaril) located 4 kms west of Herat. The village of some 2,000 families was heavily cluster bombed as U.S. war planes targeted parked Taliban vehicles. The BLU cluster bombs killed 12 civilians that night and littered the area with unexploded bomblets. A day later, a child died when touching such a bomblet. Just before Christmas and in late February 2002, such cluster bomblets killed two more civilians around Jebrael.
