Korea mudslides dislodge old landmines

Munitions intended to keep enemy at bay now pose threat to locals.

    Hundreds of South Korean troops have been deployed to search for landmines following mudslides.

    The mines were planted decades ago on Seoul's Mount Umyeon to thwart any possible land invasion by North Korean troops.

    More than 50 people have died so far in the heaviest July rainfall recorded in more than 100 years.
