As reported earlier this week on the Wire, international talks are taking place in New Zealand to develop a treaty to ban cluster bombs. Today, after four days of negotiations, the Australian delegation is being accused of trying to weaken the treaty. There are about a thousand protesters outside the meeting, many of them victims of such weapons. John Rodsted from Cluster Munition Coalition is in Wellington and he said that the victims would be very disappointed if Australia does not sign the draft treaty.
