Description
Special on Landmines

Landmines are weapons that kill indiscriminately – long after a war has ended.

Can the production, use and stockpiling of antipersonnel landmines be eliminated forever? What progress has been made on clearing mines and unexploded bombs already in the ground in many countries? With other security threats stealing headlines around the world, will the Nairobi Summit on a Mine-Free World help maintain focus on the landmine issue as a battle that can be won?

These are some of the questions explored in this special edition of World Chronicle focusing on landmines. Guests are Ambassador Wolfgang Petritsch of Austia, the President of the Nairobi Summit on a Mine-Free World, and Martin Barber, the Director of the United Nations Mine Action Service.
