Description : 17 year-old Rasha lost her leg when handling a cluster sub-munition in the family home.

According to her and her family, her father had unknowingly brought back a cluster bomb among wild thyme he was picking which he left in a bag outside the house. Rasha reached into the bag for some thyme and grabbed the cluster sub-munition as well. Startled by it she dropped it and it went off.
