Landmines are no joke. Starting from the First World War, landmines have been installed to stop intruding troops from advancing farther.

In most areas of the world, land mines are removed by skilled individuals who are wearing proper protection against explosives. In the past (and present for some areas), children were used to detect and detonate old mines leftover from the war. Landmines are designed to go off when there is a pressure differential , so removing them has been known to cause death or permanent disfigurement.
