"Bouncing Betty"

Qadish, Iraq

A bounding or fragmentation mine.
Is triggered by a trip wire or applying direct pressure to the top.
A small explosion propels the charge approximately 1 metre in the air.
This then detonates, releasing a shower of metal fragments,
killing and maiming anybody and anything in its' range.

A very deadly and lethal weapon.
