Sri Lanka army mine clearing operation in the northern town of Kokavil on April 08, 2011. The Sri Lankan military estimates more than a million landmines and other unexploded devices were planted in the last few years of the war, threatening the lives of civilians who are now returning to their villages. The army runs the largest de-mining operation, while organisations like FSD, the Mine Action Group and the Halo Trust are also working in Sri Lanka. The United Nations estimates it takes only three dollars to lay a mine, and 1,000 dollars to remove one. Pic by Pradeep Pathirana

    This is one side of the story. What about mines planted by the Military. They are also within the 1 Million estimated. Disgusting alright but both of them have to take responsibility.
