Around the TajMahal was laid out a magnificent park with ornamental lakes, fountains and canals, which took a total of 18 hectares. Unlike other facilities, which are usually placed in the center of the garden, TajMahal is located at its end, as his crown.

I want Rae to be there.

I want to have my first baby in China and get married near the Thaj Mahal.

My yearly assignment pad is getting thin.

Sad I am not,

Hopeful only

“For me, there’s a hope” that comes with Benedict’s visit, Ortiz said. “There’s a hope that something’s going to change.”

“I didn’t know I had been hit until I saw my shoe with my foot inside it laying close to me.”

Turkish officials say at least 10 Syrian landmine victims have been treated in Turkish hospitals in recent weeks.

Syrian minefields buried along the borders of both Turkey and Lebanon.

An international convention banning the use of antipersonnel mines has been signed by 159 countries. Syria, the United States and Russia are not signatories.

 

 Though the Syrian minefields were new, at least some of the landmines appeared to have been manufactured decades ago during the Cold War. “The PMN-2 antipersonnel landmine was produced in state factories of the Soviet Union,” wrote Mark Hiznay, a senior researcher in Human Rights Watch’s Arms Division. “The examples we photographed had stamps on them that indicated the explosives were loaded into the mines in 1982.”

According to Human Rights Watch, it was impossible to ascertain when the mines were sold to Syria

 

Typically, de-mining operations in conflict zones are carried out by experts wearing armor and using specialized equipment. But the Syrian activist Hajisa and his colleagues had none of these resources and virtually no training when they began the dangerous work of clearing smugglers’ trails. “So I conducted an experiment. I dug in a big stick next to a mine, tied a rope to it, and went 20 meters away from the mine to pull it out. When I saw the mine didn’t explode, I discovered that you have to step on it to detonate it.”

 

A crackdown on protesters by the Syrian regime has been going on for more than a year. The United Nations estimates as many as 9,000 people have been killed, while activists put the toll at more than 10,000. The violence has forced thousands from their homes, many of them seeking refuge in Turkey.

“I hide them here because I don’t know where else to put them,” he said.
