Poster Warning of Unexploded Ordenance in Phonsavan, LaosWho needs a BMX bike when you have a 2000-pound buffalo to ride! The children of Myanmar and throughout many countries of the developing world however must be very careful where they roam due to landmines and UXO (unexploded ordinance) left behind from years of war. Posters warn of the danger. Myanmar has among the highest number of mine casualties of any country in the world. Although data is difficult to collect, estimates are as high as one to two thousand deaths a year, many of them children.
