Description : Mohammed smokes tobacco from a water pipe

He is father of 17-year-old Rasha who lost her leg when handling a cluster sub-munition in the family home. Her father unknowingly brought back a cluster bomb among wild thyme he had picked and left in a bag outside the house. Rasha reached into the bag for some thyme and grabbed the cluster sub-munition as well. Startled, she dropped it and it went off.
