ARC – Critical issue Module 5: Landmine awareness
In war-torn countries around the world, millions of unexploded bombs, shells, grenades, missiles, cluster munitions and other types of unexploded ordnance, commonly known as explosive remnants of war, continue to kill and maim civilians long after the guns have fallen silent. Each year, large numbers of people, mostly civilians, continue to be senselessly killed or injured.
