'This young girl in Afghanistan, like Mao Sopheap in Cambodia, lost her leg by stepping on a landmine'

Every month hundreds of people are killed or maimed by landmines, but the U.S. has not joined 156 other nations and signed the 10 year old Mine Ban Treaty.

Last week, 68 U.S. Senators voiced their support for the ban, giving Obama the two-thirds majority needed in the Senate to ratify.
