All known casualties (between 1999 and 2017)

1 mine/explosive remnants of war (ERW) casualties: 1 injured 


As in previous years, it is not known if new mine or ERW casualties occurred in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).

Since 1999, the Monitor recorded one mine incident in December 2002: a North Korean soldier involved in construction work in the demilitarized zone lost a foot in a landmine explosion.[1] It is likely that other incidents went unreported.
