Unexploded weapons haunt northern Ethiopian communities

“It’s an absolute tragedy for someone to be killed or to lose a limb due to the detonation of unexploded ordnances, even more so after the end of a conflict,” said Vasanth Kanags, the ICRC’s weapon contamination specialist in the region. “It’s urgent that we inform communities of this danger, especially children who naturally want to play with new, interesting-looking objects.”
