Cluster bombs ignored

A meeting that has been largely ignored by the media took place last Saturday and Sunday in Oslo. 49 countries met to discuss the use of cluster bombs and 46 of them signed up to a committment to work towards an international ban on their use.

Poland, Japan and Romania voted against. Russia, China and the US were not there.
