This chapter describes and discusses small arms, explosives, and incendiaries that can be used as terrorist weapons. It describes antipersonnel landmines and the Mine Ban Treaty of 1997. It concludes that in order to prevent terrorism with small arms, explosives, and incendiaries, we must reduce the diversion of legal small arms and explosives to illegal markets, improve information exchange and investigations, “harden” targets, and strengthen injury control and emergency preparedness.

Keywords:   landmines, 9/11, terrorism, the arms trade, injury control, emergency preparedness
