Maputo Death Toll up to 93

Even after a war is over, it continues to kill. Northern Moçambique, where I lived, continued to suffer from land mines left over from the struggle for independence and the civil war that followed. Now the blast in Maputo is reported to be caused by stored weapons and ammunition left over from the war.

Did you hear about the "Miss Landmine 2007" beauty pageant some Norwegian group is organising in Angola?
