Mines and unexploded munitions have killed 52 people and injured 63 in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk over just the past week. The Daily Mirror of London is reporting that most of the victims were children. Iraq is being reminded once again that long after the combat fighting ends, the killing continues.

Over the past week the mine-clearing charity The Mines Advisory Group has removed 30 truckloads of explosives that is: 11,000 mines plus 200,000 bombs and missiles.

But it is estimated that 10 million mines remain lying in Iraq over the past war-torn decade.
