All known casualties (between 1963 and 2017)
1,575 mine/unexploded remnants of war (ERW) casualties
No mine/ERW casualties were reported in 2017 in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau. One casualty was reported in 2016 when a boy was killed by ERW in Bissora, Oio region. Although no new casualties were recorded in 2015, 41 casualties were recorded in 2014, more than four-times the number of mine/ERW casualties that occurred in 2013, when 10 mine/ERW casualties were recorded—all within the region of Oio.
There were a total of 1,574 casualties from mines/ERW reported from 1963 to December 2016. However, this was not believed to be a comprehensive figure. An estimated 80% of all casualties were male, the majority of whom were farmers. No information was available on whether the figure included both military and civilian casualties.
Cluster munition casualties
While the total number of casualties from cluster munitions is not known in Guinea-Bissau, there were 11 casualties in 1998 during an attack on a weapons depot; the explosion that caused the casualties involved cluster munitions.
