Mission of Afghan Mine Removal Expert, and Struggles of 12-Year-Old Bomb Survivor

A group that monitors landmines says more than 25,000 people have been killed or injured in landmine accidents in Afghanistan since 1978. An Afghan expert on unexploded ordinances told VOA he has made it his life's mission to defuse the devices before they maim and kill.

Shaista Sadat Lami narrates their story.
