Dozens of civilians, including many children, have been killed or injured in recent weeks in Libya by landmines planted by Col Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and unexploded munitions they left behind.
The BBC’s Damian Grammaticas reports from Zlitan, where more than one person a day has been hurt or killed by mines and bombs in the past four weeks but where there are no trained de-mining teams.
His face scorched and scarred, 13-year-old Abdulfatah Hazaz is lying in a hospital bed.
The boy’s left arm is swathed in bandages, the bones shattered, his stomach peppered with shrapnel, his spleen ruptured.
