The use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) as a weapon of insurgency or war has increased alarmingly over the last decade and 66 countries have reported at least one civilian casualty from IEDs. They pose a threat in developed and developing countries alike and like all explosive remnants of war, their legacy remains long after a conflict has ended. Records show that 85% of those killed or injured by IEDs are civilians so their removal is a concern to both security forces and humanitarian agencies.
