Claudia Joana Cruz (22) stepped on a landmine in 2013 while she was returning from a field trip on the countryside in Cauca. From that day she recalls: “I lost consciousness after the blast and they told me later I was losing a lot of blood. The reason they had to amputate so high was due to the infection. It took almost five hours until I was finally given medical assistance."
More than 11,400 people have been injured or killed by landmines since 1990. Uncleared minefields remain an obstacle to development and resettlement in areas of Colombia.
A peace accord has ended the fighting but the countryside is littered with land mines and criminal gangs are growing reclaiming territories left by FARC demobilized rebels. Deming is one of the challenges this hopeful nation faces after five decades of Civil War.

@juliapierce this was the IG post about land mines in Columbia.... I had forgotten that it was a NatGeo post

@rodrigoceron

En Colombia NUNCA hubo una guerra civil.Lo que hay es un bando de terroristas que son las FARC y el ELN, que se dedican al secuestro, la extorsión y el narcotrafico.Pero NO tienen el apoyo de ninguna parte de la población. Exijo respeto por la verdad y las víctimas, deben corregir ese artículo. In Colombia there was NEVER a civil war. What there is is a group of terrorists that are the FARC and the ELN, who are dedicated to kidnapping, extortion and drug trafficking. But they do not have the support of any part of the population. I demand respect for the truth and the victims must correct that article.
