Sacks full of anti-personnel mines stand before stacks of anti-tank mines inside an abandoned munitions bunker complex near the eastern Libyan city of Ajdabiyah, November 4, 2011. Munitions stockpiles in eastern Libya remain for a large part unguarded, despite pledges by the interim government to secure the country's massive arsenal. The abundance of arms free for the taking, in an area that has not seen combat since the summer, throws a major challenge to the country's National Transitional Council (NTC) as it struggles to bring order after the uprising that toppled Muammar Gaddafi.

Albanians walk during a silent demonstration to commemorate the victims of an explosion at an ammunition dump in Gerdec, in Tirana March 21, 2008. A series of explosions occurred at an ammunition dump on March 15 as workers were moving stocks of old Chinese and Soviet shells stored at the base, a collection point for the arsenal amassed by the communist-era dictatorship preparing for an invasion that never came.
