Nepal's landmine victims left in lurch

Activists say government did little for 5,000 victims of landmines planted during country's civil war.

    More than 5,000 people in Nepal have been injured by landmines planted during the decades-long civil war.

    Although Nepal is now "landmine free," activists say the government has done little to support the vicims.

    From Kapilvastu, Al Jazeera's Subina Shrestha looks at Nepal's victims of landmines in part one of our our series to mark the UN Day for Mine Action and Awareness on April 4.
