Self-destructing mines not so 'smart'

Self-destructing mines not so 'smart'

Vienna - Landmines designed to self-destruct after a short time do not always do so, and will not halt the death and destruction inflicted on civilian populations, Oxfam said. Some nations, including the United States, attending a Vienna conference to review a convention on inhumane weapons, have said self-destructing "smart mines" would not remain a danger to civilians long after a conflict was over.
