World Landmine Awareness Day

The United Nations estimates that 84 countries are affected by landmines and unexploded ordnance, which kill or maim between 15,000 and 20,000 adults and children annually. The UN has thus called for Mine Awareness Day, which has been observed every April 4 since 2006.

DW marks the day with special coverage on the issue of landmines, from Afghanistan to Angola, and including novel methods of clearing them, such as wind power and trained rats.
