As Press TV reports, depleted Uranium is also used in Libya. Some people do even think, that higher radiation levels in Europe are due to this war, and not due to the accident in Fukushima, Japan.
It is proven that depleted uranium weapons do harm the health in a high measure, a German Medical even had to go to prison because he carried a used cannon ball out of depleted uranium to a University to get it analyzed. The judge said that this would be a big threat for the public. At the same time, officials say, these weapons would not threat the health of civilians when they are used in a war.
