Landmines – The Facts

I have been researching the topic of landmines now for almost 2 months, and have come across many horrific facts and figures within this information.

Landmines still remain a huge cause of death and injury across the world, especially in poorer war-torn countres, and the result of this is an increasing disabled population, as limbs are lost to the anti-personnel devices.

I came across this list of statistics which I found particularly interesting from CARE.
