    16 year-old Mohammed Mahdi was working as an apprentice in an auto shop when he reached for an
    engine part on the floor. He touched a tiny cluster bomblet that was next to the part. The explosion blew off half of his hand and burned his body. He was taken to the hospital in Nabatiyeh. As the oldest son of a farming family, Mohammed’s future employment was to be a crucial source of cash income.
