Global pact to clean up unexploded arms takes effect

A global treaty obliging warring parties to remove unexploded munitions which kill and maim long after fighting ends came into force on Sunday, amid moves to start negotiations to curb use of cluster bombs. The “explosive remnants of war” pact, clinched three years ago, has been ratified by more than the 20 states needed to become legally binding. It requires the cleaning up of deadly debris such as unexploded shells, grenades, cluster submunitions, mortars and rockets which lie in wait after the end of hostilities. F ull Story
