Mass-murder of HALO Trust in Afghanistan; & What is to be done? Jeff McCausland @CBSNews

Photo: At 21:50 local time on June 8, ten HALO staff were killed and 16 injured by an unknown armed group at a demining camp in the Baghlan Province of Afghanistan. The group entered the camp and opened fire. We strongly condemn the attack on our staff, who were carrying out humanitarian work to save lives. We are focused now on care of the injured staff and supporting the families affected.
—James Cowan, HALO CEO

Here: PROM-1 bounding landmine. Normally, it's buried so only the prongs are visible.

"HALO partners with other NGOs in many of our programmes, including Mines Advisory Group (MAG), Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), Danish Church Aid (DCA), Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), Action Against Hunger (ACF), Development Assistance Organisation (DAO), Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees (DACAAR) and Hand in Hand."

"HALO’s daily work involves the removal and clearance of explosives designed to kill and maim."
