More fall victim to Yemen landmines

Increasing number of amputees puts strain on medical services and prosthetic manufacturer.

    An increasing number of people have fallen victim to landmines in Yemen, where many are facing years of treatment and rehabilitation.

    Doctors are struggling to help the injured, who have to rely on locally-made prosthetic limbs.

    Meanwhile, mine clearance teams are being hampered by the continuing unrest in both the north and south of the country.
