Nicaraguan landmines finally removed after 80s war


All the landmines planted in Nicaragua during the civil war of the 1980s have been removed, the authorities have said.

Most had been planted along strategic points on the borders with Honduras and Costa Rica.

Officials say the land, which has been out of bounds for almost three decades, will now be available to farmers.
