Afghans trade mines for vines

One American non-profit group works to help Afghans to clear farms from landmines and plant grapes vines instead.

    More than three quarters of the people who live in Afghanistan depend on agriculture to survive.

    Poor roads and a lack of infrastructure mean many crops never get to market.

    But there is one American non-profit group working to change that, replacing landmines with grape vines.
