A young boy who lost his arm to a soviet mine stands in front of one of
the thousands of tanks that litter the Panjsher Valley. The Soviets
scattered colorful 'butterfly' mines by air which effectively attracted the
curious.


Landmines in Afghanistan

There are millions of landmines scattered across Afghanistan that
will ensure a legacy of mutilation for generations to come. When
war is over, the soldiers go home, but the landmines remain.

There are a number of demining groups that lead a galliant effort to
remove these instruments of war forever. I had the opportunity to
accompany members from the
HALO Trust who were working
on a demining project in the Shomali Plains, just north of Kabul.
