'US drops uranium bombs on Libya'
27 Mar 2011 The Stop the War Coalition says the bombs and missiles that the US-led military alliance has dropped on several Libyan cities contain depleted uranium (DU). The report recently published on the Coalition's website said that in the first 24 hours of the war on Libya, dozens of bombs and cruise missiles were launched by US, British, and French forces -- all with depleted uranium warheads. US B-2 aircraft dropped forty-five 2,000-pound bombs on key Libyan cities, it added.
US protesters condemn Libya attacks
27 Mar 2011 Anti-war protesters have gathered in front of the White House in Washington DC to denounce the US-led airstrikes on Libya which began last week. The demonstrators, protesting the US involvement in the war, shouted anti-war slogans and sang in front of the White House on Sunday as US-led Western warplanes intensify their aerial attacks on forces loyal to Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi, a Press TV correspondent in Washington reported. The anti-war protest comes two days after similar demonstrations were held in the United States on the eighth anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq.
