Thanks to a highly successful campaign conducted in recent years, the problem of land mines has attracted a great deal of publicity in the media. The Ottawa Convention of 1997 prohibits the production, storage, use and passing on of anti-personnel mines. Unfortunately some big countries have not signed up to the convention. The USA is a case in hand. Land mines are still manufactured in various countries and are still used by countries at war.
