Introduction

Every minute, two people are killed in conflicts around the world.

Often very little is known about the people who are fighting and dying.

The BBC programme One Day of War follows individual fighters in 16 of these wars, over the same 24 hour period.

Use this map to find out about each of these conflicts. Why are people fighting? How long have the wars been going on? And how many have died?

Then read accounts of the conflicts from each of the 16 locations.
