There are several million landmines planted throughout the world. Landmines are often used as offensive weapons to target civilian populations and spread terror. Landmines generally tend to aggravate hostilities and keep killing well after then end of a war. There is an ongoing international effort to prevent the manufacturing and deployment of landmines, as well as organizations dedicated to removing mines. The US deferred signing the international ban on landmines since the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea contains mines. Anyway, these are links about the mine problems and solutions. Feel free to add your links.
International Campaign to Ban Landmines (www.icbl.org) ICBL is an extremely informative site on the landmine issue with news and a landmine monitor. They have resources which describe the different stances on the issue, as well as resources on what you can do to raise awareness of the issue.
