In the first weeks of the new year, a new controversy has erupted among NATO allies over possible health effects of the Pentagon's use of depleted uranium (DU) weapons on their troops who served in Bosnia, Kosova and Serbia. The European Union and several individual states, Italy, Spain and Holland among them, have demanded an investigation into the use of DU weapons by American and NATO warplanes during air assaults on Serbia and Kosova in 1999 and Bosnia in 1995. The weapons are favored because their hardness and density make them highly effective against armored vehicles and tanks.
