Removing Landmines in Yemen doesn't go to plan

“In case it was lost on anyone, the little black stick that pops up from under the base of the center mine is the fuse trigger lever for a hand grenade (or possibly some type of AP mine). Whoever planted these booby trapped them against removal by pulling the pin and carefully setting the AT mine on top of the fuse trigger. When the mine is removed from it’s hole, the fuse trigger pops and triggers the explosive.”

The bastards hope they were alright

That is nasty. Why are they doing this by hand. There are machines these days to do this(they explode the minte as they go)
