-A visit by a Red Cross charter flight to then national rehabilitation center in Gitega, Burundi’s second-largest city;

-Interviews with civilian and military mine survivors recuperating in Bujumbura’s hospitals;

-Brief interviews on landmines in French, Kirundi, and Swahili, with vendors and shoppers at Burundi’s bustling central market.
