New evidence has emerged that the USA dropped massive amounts of white phosphorus on the city of Fallujah during attacks on the city in 2004. Since the assault rumors have swirled around that the US used chemical weapons.
In December the government denied reports calling them "widespread myths" and the USinfo website says: "Phosphorus shells are not outlawed. US forces have used them very sparingly in Fallujah, for illumination purposes."
Photographs from http://www.rainews24 says it has high quality close up photographs showing residents of Fallujah, some still in bed, whose skin has caramelised or been dissolved by the shells.
