Many thanks to those nice people at the International Campaign to Ban Landmines for the mention on the links section of their website.

This week, the ICBL is marking the sixth anniversary of the signing of the 1997 Ottawa Mine Ban Treaty and launching the process leading to the 2004 Nairobi Summit on a Mine Free World, which will take place from 29 November to 3 December 2004.

Worryingly, the ICBL is warning that landmine use is rising in Nepal, where troops and Maoist rebels are apparently using mines with increasing frequency.
