http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/29/world/meast/turkey-syria-land-mines/index.html?eref=rss_topstories&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_topstories+%28RSS%3A+Top+Stories%29

In CNN's article, "Syrians try to clear antipersonnel mines near Turkish border," numbers are used multiple times.

The numbers are used to reference the amount of antipersonnel mines placed between the boarders of Turkey and Syria, the amount of refugees from Syria that are in Turkey, the amount of countries that are apart of the Treaty which bans land mines, and distance such as 5 to 6 centimeters below the ground and "20 meters away."

The numbers used in the story are not overwhelming, but are easy to understand and informative.

It doesn't seem as if the numbers required any math, but hopefully the author double and triple checked to see if the numbers were correct according to sources.
