Locals: US white phosphorus use linked to birth defects in Fallujah

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of the US-led assault on Iraq’s Fallujah, locals and campaigners spoke out about the horrors of the use of white phosphorus.

White phosphorus is banned for use against civilian targets and is known to cause severe burns, organ damage, and even death.

In 2005, the Pentagon admitted the use of white phosphorus as an 'incendiary weapon' in Fallujah.
