03 Apr

AlJazeeraEnglish — April 03, 2010 — More than a year after Israel’s military offensive in Gaza, many Palestinians in the territory are still being killed or injured by unexploded bombs and mortars left behind.

A UN bomb disposal team is now working to help clear the region of the danger.

The team’s leader says they have found traces of white phosphorous – a highly toxic chemical compound – in some of the explosives.

Casey Kauffman reports from Gaza on the highly challenging UN mission.
