A handout picture released by the United Nations-African Union Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) shows Suleiman Fatul Saim, 10, from Dar al-Salam in North Darfur, posing for a picture in El-Fasher, the administrative capital of North Darfur. Suleiman suffered burns to more than 90 percent of his body when his brother detonated a device found near their house in November 2006 as they planned to celebrate the victory of their football team in an accident that left one of their friends dead. From aircraft bombs to cluster munitions and grenades, the Ordnance Disposal Office of the international peacekeeping force in Sudan’s war-torn Darfur has found and destroyed them all. But for every piece of unexploded weaponry the ODO eliminates, worsening fighting means that other munitions will take their place, posing a threat to farmers and peacekeepers alike. Read more
