28.4.2021 Deadly landmines kill 28 civilians in Arghandab in 10 days
KANDAHAR CITY (SW) – An array of landmines placed by the Taliban in
Kandahar’s Arghandab district has killed at least 28 civilians and injured
151, officials confirmed.

Officials at Kandahar’s Mirwais Regional Hospital have said that most of
the victims who were recently taken to the hospital were victims of
landmines, most of them Arghandab residents. In the past one and a half
weeks alone, 28 dead bodies and 151 injured civilians, all of whom were
landmine victims, have been taken to the hospital from Arghandab,

Shogofa said she was on her way to her cousin’s house a few days ago when
she was struck by a Taliban mine that injured her seriously. According to
her, the Taliban had even planted mines in her home and even in the
kitchen. She said she was fearful about return to her home.

These internally displaced persons want the government to defuse the mines
and save their lives.
