Landmines Take Growing Toll in Afghanistan

KABUL (AFP) — According to the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), the number of casualties from landmines and so-called “explosive remnants of war” have increased because of the intensifying fight between the Afghanistan government and the Taliban, especially since 2014.

The government has signed an international anti-landmine treaty, but the Taliban and other militants are bound by no such rules.
