Overview

Human Rights Watch conducted a mission to Iraq between late April and early June 2003 to investigate potential violations of international law and to identify patterns of combat that may have caused avoidable civilian casualties and suffering. In this report on the mission, the group found that Iraqi forces committed a number of violations and details them. They avoid stating that UK and US forces committed violations but offer criticisms of use of cluster munitions, a "flawed targeting strategy" for bombing attacks, and a failure to clean up explosive remnants of war.
