A boy stands in front of a house built on bombs dropped by the US Air Force planes during the Vietnam War, in the village of Ban Napia in Xieng Khouang province, Laos. From 1964 to 1973, US warplanes dropped more than 270 million cluster munitions on Laos, one-third of which did not explode, according to the Lao National Regulatory Authority for UXO. The bombings were part of a Central Intelligence Agency-run, secret operation aimed at destroying the North Vietnamese supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh trail and wiping out its communist allies. They also left a trail of devastation in Laos, which US planes used as a dumping ground for bombs when their original target was unavailable and planes couldn’t land with explosives.
