The Government admitted during the war on Iraq that the use of cluster bombs
against civilian targets would "not be legal", a letter obtained by The
Independent has revealed.

Anti-landmine charities claimed last night that the letter by Adam Ingram,
the Armed Forces minister, proved that the Ministry of Defence had broken
international law by using the munitions in towns and cities.

Mr Ingram admitted for the first time yesterday that cluster bombs were
dropped on "built-up areas" in Iraq.
