Landmines pose threat after Bosnia floods

Authorities fear worst flooding in over a century may have dislodged 120,000 landmines left over from the Bosnian war.

    People in Europe's flood-ravaged Balkans region have started returning home to assess the damage.

    In Bosnia, 22 people are known to have died.

    There are fears that some of the 120,000 landmines left over from the Bosnian war have been dislodged.
