Looking back at landmine treaty 15 years on

Delegates are back in Mozambique to find out what difference the ban signed 15 years earlier has made.

    An international convention that bans landmines was signed in Mozambique in 1999.

    Today, 15 years later, delegates are back in the country, this time to see what difference the ban has made, and what more must be done.

    A lot of progress has been made. Now mines are rarely used in conflicts, and even countries that haven't signed up - abide by most of its rules.
