Bosnia - Unstable conditions have caused
heavy mining along borders with Serbia. There is not enough information
to form a good estimate on the number of landmines.
Croatia - One million mines still lurk
on these soils despite local and international efforts to demine the area.
Afghanistan - Considered to be one
of the most heavily mined areas, there are more than 10 million landmines
that have not been cleared yet. Most of these mines hinder everyday life,
being placed around water sources and along many roads.
Cambodia - Numerous conflicts here
have inflicted poverty and hunger upon small villages whose farm fields
have been randomly sown with 7 to 9 million landmines.
In Afghanistan and Cambodia, around 35% of the land is unusable
due to the millions of landmines buried in these countries.
Angola - A 20-year civil war had left
some 9-20 million land mines in the country. It is estimated that about
70,000 people have had their limbs amputated because of these mines.
Chad - desert minefields exist along
the borders with Niger and north along Lybia.
Somalia - Many minefields still exist.
Some are even designed to cripple the civilian population, even covering
areas around schools.
