    Trump lifts restrictions on deployment of landmines, the “non persistent” models

    Trump gave the green light to so-called “non-persistent” landmines that can be switched off remotely rather than staying in the ground forever.

    President Donald Trump on Friday lifted US restrictions on the deployment of landmines, saying a new generation of high-tech explosives would improve security for US forces. In the latest reversal of a policy of his predecessor Barack Obama, Trump gave the green light to so-called “non-persistent” landmines that can be switched off remotely rather than staying in the ground forever.
