More Dutch Ammunition found unsafe

Last year unsafe Dutch ammunition led to the death of two soldiers during an exercise in Mali, where the Netherlands has soldiers on a UN peace mission. In the meantime additional ammunition has been declared unsafe. This concerns anti-tank ammunition and smoke grenades which possibly have deteriorated due to the high temperatures in the African country. Furthermore it has been decided that the 81 mm mortars of the Dutch soldiers in Mali and Lithuania present a safety risk and should not be used.
