Landmines and other "explosive remnants of war" continue to cause major problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Most of these devices have been here since the 1993-1995 war in the former Yugoslavia. They contaminate some 1,263 square kilometres and have caused 8,075 recorded casualties, of whom more than 5,800 survived.
