From 1964 through 1973, the United States flew 580,000 bombing runs over Laos — one every 9 minutes for 10 years. More than 2 million tons of ordnance was unloaded on the countryside, double the amount dropped on Nazi Germany in World War II.

Nearly half of Laos is now contaminated with unexploded ordinance, explosive weapons such as bombs, grenades and land mines.
