The horror of landmines is set out in a new exhibition at the Imperial War Museum North. It presents the photos of Sean Sutton who works for the Mines Advisory Group (MAG) International. MAG trains locals to clear the mines. Interviewed in the Manchester Evening News, the photojournalist said: “the majority of people who are injured by landmines know they are in a mined area but have no choice but to travel through to get food and water”. Landmines continue to impoverish communities long after war ends, with children being especially vulnerable — walking to school or to collect water.
