It's quite an old item - I believe some effort has been made recently by a number of governments to persuade the US not to use anti-personnel mines in Iraq and it looks like they won't. (Although I'm not sure where I found this out so can't give a source) While on the subject, the number of deaths that this will cause directly isn't really the issue here as modern anti-personnel mines used by the US do at least have a timer so that they deactivate themselves after a fairly short period (the only risk occuring the few times that they don't deactivate properly). The issue is that other governments without such technology will be able to say that anti-personnel mines are acceptable if the US use them in Iraq.
