What are landmines

Landmines are explosives buried under the ground or laying on top of it. They are directed against people and vehicles and are constructed in such a way, that the triggering mechanism is launched accidentally or unintended by e.g. weight, vibration, height etc. – based on the type of trigger. Landmines kill without identification of the potential victim and therefore do not distinguishing between friend or foe [1].
