Muxito Sambo carefully uncovers a PPM2 anti-personnel mine while children play nearby. Hundreds of mines have been found here surrounding the houses. The presence of live minefields around major population centres are a legacy of more than 30 years of civil war, leaving areas of land highly dangerous and putting pressure on the cleared land for settlement and agriculture.
