23 April 2014 – A 29-year-old young Saharawi died in a landmine blast, which occurred in the suburbs of the occupied city of Smara in Western Sahara, said a Saharawi media source from the city.

Ahmeitu Mahmud was hit by the mine while he was pasturing a herd of camels in a region called Assakn, 30 km south-western of Smara.

Contaminated with more than 7 million landmines, Western Sahara is divided by a 2.700 km-long military wall built by Morocco. This wall annually leaves many casualties among the nomadic Sahrawi families and their livestock.
