North, SRI LANKA

Recently arrived home, their belongings packed in ammunition cases, the Selvayatnam family begin building a makeshift house on the foundations of what used to be their shop. They later found a landmine booby-trap on the land, which was defused by a team from the Mines Advisory Group (MAG). 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.
