U.S. out of Indochina?

Three decades after the final act of the Vietnam War, Laos, the conflict's secret and illegal theater, remains littered with millions of unexploded U.S. bombs, which kill or maim at least 200 people a year.

In all, an estimated 2 million tonnes of munitions were dropped on Laos, a landlocked jungle-clad country of 5 million people which still has the dubious honor of being the most bombed country per capita in the world.

Of that 2 million tonnes, around 30 percent did not detonate, say Lao bomb disposal experts responsible for cleaning up the horrific harvest of unexploded ordnance, or UXO as it is called.
