Caption: Oil well fire. Cluster bomb in front of a burning oil well in the Rumeilah Oil Field in southern Iraq. Several well heads were set alight with explosives by retreating Iraqi troops during the coalition invasion in March 2003. The area is littered with unexploded bombs, which required clearing before the well fires could be tackled.
