landmines
Landmines
  • The leading cause for injury among native Afghans is the risk of landmines. Landmines are “explosive devices that are designed to explode when triggered by pressure or a tripwire and are found just below the surface of the ground.” (What are landmines?) Small children, workers, and civilians are often killed or seriously wounded because they are unable to tell where the landmines are located. Doctors frequently have to amputate limbs in inadequate conditions, leading to infection and the spread of disease.
