An Iraqi man recovers metal parts from an anti-aircraft gun in a wreckage dump on the outskirts of Baghdad, May 25, 2003. Iraqi armoured vehicles lie at a wreckage dump on the outskirts of Baghdad, May 25, 2003. The vehicles brought here were destroyed when U.S.-led strikes used depleted uranium shells against tanks and other armored vehicles during the war that ousted [Saddam Hussein.] Iraqi doctors and scientists are worried that birth defects and childhood cancers could surge in the aftermath of the latest conflict, not unlike medical problems in southern Iraq after the mildly radioactive munitions were first used in the 1991 Gulf War.

Portuguese Defence Minister Julio Castro Caldas (C) and Science Minister Mariano Gago (R) talk to Portuguese KFOR officer (L) after their arrival in Pristina January 9, 2001. The death from brain disease of a Portuguese soldier who served in Kosovo and news that another was suffering from leukaemia have stirred fears in Portugal that their illnesses could be due to so-called "Balkans Syndrome". NATO used depleted uranium in armour-piercing shells during military campaigns in the 1990s in Bosnia and Kosovo and the subsequent deaths from cancer of former peacekeepers from a number of alliance states have prompted widespread suspicion that there could be a link.

A British Defence Ministry spokeswoman said tests of the ammunition, which some Gulf War and Balkans veterans blame for unexplained cases of cancer and other ailments, had been monitored by environmental and military experts.
