Over 9,000 improvised mines cleared by Mines Advisory Group (MAG) in the last six months
Twenty years on from the historic Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (Ottawa Treaty), the world is facing a new landmine emergency, the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) warned today. The regional conflict in Iraq and Syria has resulted in a scale of contamination not seen for decades. The international NGO – which has been working in the region since 1992 – is reporting an increase in the numbers of fatalities and injuries from these indiscriminate killers.
The figures are simply mind-numbing. Over 270 million cluster bombs fell on Laos and up to 80 million did not detonate. More than half of all cluster munition casualties in the world are in Laos.
This edition of IMPACT goes beyond the numbers to the people at the heart of MAG’s work – the people who you help.
