Gun Facts: Solomon Islands

- Guns are thought to have been used to kill 150-200 and injure 430-460 others during the 'tensions'.

- The conflict led to the displacement of more than 35,000 Solomon Islanders throughout Guadalcanal and Malaita.

- In 2003, there were estimated to be more 3,500 weapons in circulation -- including both home-made guns and high-powered weapons stolen from police armouries.

- By August 2003, 90-95 per cent of the arms in civilian hands had been turned in through a RAMSI-sponsored amnesty (previous turn-ins had been less fruitful).
