Bosnia demining efforts under threat

Plans to clear the country of landmines by 2019 are looking increasingly impossible to achieve as funds run out.

    Unexploded mines from the conflict in Bosnia are still killing civilians. 600 people have died since the war ended in 1995, three of them since the beginning of this year.

    But the government doesn't have enough money to finance demining operations, and there is fear that parts of Bosnia will remain dangerous for decades to come.
