I heard a news item on the BBC this morning stating that the US was broadcasting a radio message in Afghanistan explaining how to tell bomblets from cluster bombs and food aid packages apart. Apparently both of them are yellow, and we’ve been dropping them in close enough proximity that people might blow themselves up by picking up a bomblet that they think might be a ration. This really fuels the argument that any food aid we provide should be distributed through NGOs that are already in that business in Afghanistan. (This BBC article mentions the radio message.)
