Israeli boy pushes anti-mine agenda

Eleven-year-old campaigns for clearing of explosives active along country's borders.

    More than 2,600 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli landmines in the past 40 years.

    This is no surprise considering that more than a million mines remain active. They are scattered along Israel's borders with Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt.

    Israel has always refused to remove them, but now an 11-year-old Israeli boy is campaigning to have them cleared.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports.
