101 BLU 26 cluster bomblets are destroyed in a controlled explosion by a Mines Advisory Group (MAG) team which came to clear the area of unexploded ordnance (UXO).
Decades on, Laos is still living with the effects of the Vietnam war. Millions of bombs were dropped by US aircraft in Laos in an attempt to destroy the supply lines of North Vietnamese forces. Here in Bourlapha district, there were over 36,000 bombing missions. Many of the bombs remain deadly, with frequent accidents involving UXO.
