A cluster bomb left behind in Lebanon by IDF forces killed a shepherd on Thursday, according to Lebanon's official news agency. The report said 45-year-old Fuad Moussa Ghanawi was tending cattle near the village of Houla, close to the border with Israel, when the bomb went off. Ghanawi was reportedly taken to hospital in the port city of Sidon, where he died of his wounds. According to the UN mine center, more than 30 Lebanese civilians have died in cluster bomb or land mine blasts in Lebanon since the 2006 Israel-Hizbullah war. Another 14 people - de-mining Lebanese army experts, members of the UN peacekeeping force in south Lebanon and private mine action teams - have also died in similar explosions since 2006.
