AFGHAN SAPPER SEARCHES FOR LANDMINES IN BAGRAM VALLEY.
Salim Khan, an Afghan sapper, carefully searches for landmines in the
Bagram valley, near the coalition joint task force base, 50 kms (31
miles) north of Kabul, April 14, 2003. Afghanistan, one of the most
heavily mined countries in the world, will begin a month-long mine
awareness campaign April 15. Landmines left over from Afghanistan's 23
years of war still claim more than 100 victims a month. REUTERS/Sherwin
