    An estimated two million ordinance were dropped on Laos during the Second Indochina war. 30 percent of the sub-munitions from cluster bombs failed to explode and pose an acute danger to the population.

    Bomb disposal experts like Manixia Thor have learned to deal with the danger. Three weeks a month, she leaves behind her husband and child to lead a team of 12 women in Laos. "It’s no coincidence that we’re an all-woman team. I’m convinced that we have a better inner radar than men,” says Manixia Thor. To date, no one in her team has been injured on the job.
