Reports from the first day of the MSP5 conference in Thailand:
AFP: Landmine campaigners warn Asia is falling behind in landmine eradication
Bangkok Post: Non-members urged to get behind landmine ban treaty
BBC News: Asia pressed on landmine ban

An interesting , if disturbing, story from Canada....that a project to teach students in Angola to avoid landmines actually makes them more likely to enter minefields. It's difficult to draw any conclusions, though, as the report doesn't offer any explanations:
Canadian landmine effort puts children at more risk

....and the horrific allegation that Burma is using prisoners to clear minefields by marching across them:
Making demining an atrocity
