Event to highlight dangers of mines

Around 1,000 people are to participate in a series of events being held in Kratie province today aimed at raising awareness about the dangers posed by land mines, according to a statement from the UN Development Programme. Land-mine survivors, community leaders and representatives of several NGOs are expected to attend. “A decade after the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Treaty became international humanitarian law, this event provides an opportunity for those who stand to most benefit from this treaty to share their thoughts,” the statement reads. A total of 244 casualties from land mines and explosive remnants of war were reported last year.
