Laos - On the 7th of April 2013, 12-year-old Chan [left] and 11-year-old Muiw lost their brother and friend Phouth, aged 13, when a cluster bomb they were playing with exploded in Done Kham village. Phouth, who was Chan's elder brother, was badly injured on both legs and passed away thirty minutes after the accident. Described by them as a likable and friendly young boy, Phouth liked fishing and shooting at birds. “He wanted to be a policeman” says his brother.
