Hidden Death

Landmines and Civilian Casualties in Iraqi Kurdistan

Legacy Link
Decades of internal conflict with the Kurds and another nine years of international strife — first with Iran and then with the U.S.-led coalition — have left much of northern Iraq littered with millions of unexploded landmines. Hidden Death documents this neglected tragedy, a clear breach of international humanitarian law, which has already produced thousands of casualties among innocent civilians trying to return home and rebuild their lives.
