Death in the field - ref. V-F-CR-F-01079

Languages: English / French

The cartoonist Patrick Chappatte travelled to Lebanon in February 2009, two and a half years after the war between Israel and Lebanon. In a cartoon documentary he describes how the population of the affected area lives with the constant threat of death or disability through unexploded cluster munitions. Millions of these bomblets were scattered during the conflict and many failed to detonate. Thus, the 2006 war continues every time someone steps on an unexploded submunition.This documentary was initially published in comic-strip form in the Swiss daily Le Temps.
