Naurits De Nuer of the UN Belgium UXO team de-fuzed the one thousand pound MK 83 bomb that Israel dropped near the town of Srifa in Southern Lebanon. This thousand pound bomb is one of nearly one million unexploded munitions (UXO) estimated to be in Southern Lebanon. The hazard will persist in Lebanon for years - in fact, decades. 60 teams are currently working in Southern Lebanon to render harmless all of this UXO.
