The UK employed 68 RBL755 and 2,100 M85 cluster munitions during the initial combat phase of operations in Iraq in 2003. The UK has not employed cluster munitions in Iraq since then, nor have we employed cluster munitions in Afghanistan.
One UK fatality in Iraq, which occurred in March 2003, can be attributed to non-UK cluster munitions. Further casualty and fatality information requested for other coalition forces, insurgents and civilians is not held by the MOD. We also do not hold the information for UK armed forces personnel casualties.
