North, SRI LANKA

Four hours after returning to find his old home destroyed, Kanapathypillai has begun to build a shelter for his family using wood and palmera leaves. There is a minefield less than 25 metres away. After decades of civil war, a ceasefire agreement was signed between the government and the Tamil Tiger rebels in February 2002. Despite the devastation wrought on the infrastructure of the country, and the remaining unexploded ordnance (UXO), thousands of people have begun returning to their homes.
