Victory: Senate Bans Cluster Bomb Exports

www.fcnl.org * Support FCNL* Sign up for weekly updates from Washington * Update your email address


Good news! Your emails, letters and phone calls are working. The Senate voted last night to effectively ban the export or transfer of U.S. cluster bombs for the next year. The U.S. has an arsenal of more than 5 million cluster weapons, each of which disperses dozens of little “bomblets” intended to kill all living creatures within a specific area that is often as large as several football fields.

The Senate restrictions on cluster bomb exports is a huge step forward for all of our efforts to stop these weapons from killing civilians. But more work needs to be done before this ban becomes law.

Read more about what you can do to help make this ban law.
