According to the 14th annual Landmine Monitor 2012 report, published by the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL), a total of 4,286 new casualties from landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) were recorded in 2011. At least 1,320 people were killed and another 2,907 people were injured. The 2011 figure is similar to the number of casualties identified in 2009 and 2010, or approximately 11-12 casualties per day. The annual incidence rate is about a third of what it was one decade ago, when there were at least 32 casualties per day.
