Fatma Mahmud, victim of land mines in 2006, near to Tinduf refugee, is seen during a reavilitation session at Land Mines Victim Center Martyr El Scherif in refugee camp of Rabuni, Tuesday March 1, 2011. After Spanish colonizers left Western Sahara in 1975, Morocco and Mauritania went to war over it. By 1979, Mauritania had pulled out and Morocco had taken over. But fighting continued between 15,000 Saharaui's Polisario guerrillas and Morocco's U.S. equipped army. A U.N. negotiated truce in 1991 called for a referendum on the region's future, but that vote never happened.
