Explosive remnants of war still kill in Angola

A  tragic reminder that explosive remnants of war continue to kill innocent people in Angola. This newspaper article (in Portuguese) recounts the story of 4 young children who were killed when playing with an explosive device they had found. The area had been de-mined but was still considered a suspect area due to unexploded munitions. The incident occurred 18km from the provincial capital of Malanje.
