DEADLY Spanish-made cluster bombs are being used against civilian targets by Muammar Gaddafi’s forces in Libya.
The controversial munitions were banned under an international treaty in 2008, but are understood to be in use in the rebel city of Misrata.
Spain has not exported cluster bombs since before the treaty was signed, although two Spanish companies, Expal and Instalaza, both made the weapons until the ban.
Official statistics show that Spain exported arms to Libya in 2008 worth 3.8 million euros, in the categories of “bombs, torpedoes, rockets and missiles.”
