Reportage: South Sudan: Birth of a Nation: South Sudan

Angelo Lokidor found an anti-personnel landmine on a road when he was a young man. When he attempted to move the mine off the road to prevent others from stepping on it, his hands caught on a trip wire and the mine exploded. He lost both hands, had serious injury to his skull, lost sight in one eye and has hearing problems.Kapoeta, South Sudan.Photo © J.B. Russell
