Land mines are containers of explosive material with detonating systems that are triggered by contact with a person or vehicle. They are designed to incapacitate that person or vehicle through damage caused by an explosive blast, fragments, (or, in the case of some antitank mines, a jet of molten metal). They are generally buried within 15 cm of the earth's surface or laid above ground.
According to the One World, 'There are estimated to be around 110 million anti-personnel mines in the ground and another 100 million stockpiled around the world.'
Land mines are now a global issue, and millions of lives are in danger. In every 15 minutes, a person becomes the victim of land mines.
