The UN on Tuesday urged Israel to hand over more detailed information about the cluster bombs it fired into Lebanon, saying at least 350,000 of the unexploded bomblets still pose a deadly risk -and could take more than two years to clear. "What we'd like is the number of shells that were fired in, and the actual coordinates," the UN's humanitarian coordinator for Lebanon, David Shearer said. "But that has not happened yet," Shearer told reporters at a news conference in Beirut. Government spokeswoman Miri Eisin said she was unaware of any official UN complaint or further request over cluster bomb mapping.
