April 26, 2017 - Banlung (Cambodia). Close-up of unexploded submunitions, also known as “bombies,” belonged to a U.S. cluster bomb discovered during a series of survey missions in the area. Each one of the cluster bombs contained 670 tennis ball-sized submunitions, which would disperse over a wide area as the bomb split open in the air before landing. It is estimated that 30% of the bombs didn’t explode and are now contaminating a huge area of Eastern Cambodia. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
