Kfor members warned about depleted uranium in Kosmet
Upon entry into Kosmet in 1999, members of the Kfor brigade West had received a Nuclear-Biological-Chemical booklet which warned of radiological dangers, writes the Frankfurt News.
A copy of the booklet was given to the paper by Falco Accame, an Italian admiral, who upon retiring had become an MP and activities of the Association for the Protection of Soldiers who have become ill from the effects of depleted uranium in peace missions.
This booklet states that vehicles and material of the Serbian Army can represent a danger to persons coming in close contact.
The text is, according to experts, the first official and explicit confirmation that NATO had used not only OU-missiles but also cruise missiles with depleted uranium.
