11 mine/unexploded remnants of war (ERW) casualties: 2 killed and 9 injured


The last reported casualties in the Republic of Cuba were in 2013, when a 48-year-old man sustained severe injuries when attempting to dismantle an item of ERW in his home and sell it for scrap in Puerto Padre. The explosion also injured two other adults and two children.[1] Between 1999 and the end of 2014, the Monitor identified a total of 11 mine casualties (two persons killed and nine injured) in Cuba.
