Jeremy Renner in Afghanistan with the United Nations (UNMAS)
The actor Jeremy Renner visited Afghanistan to shine a light on the efforts of the United Nations to remove landmines from the war-scarred country. Mr. Renner toured UN demining projects in Kabul, Bamyan and Bagram, took part in a mine risk education session with high school students, spoke with survivors of explosions and even ventured onto a minefield. Afghanistan remains plagued by mines and explosive remnants of war, despite the ongoing efforts of the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) and the Mine Action Coordination Centre of Afghanistan (MACCA), as a result of decades of conflict. Mr. Renner said he saw first-hand the benefits of the UN's activities, particularly in former minefields where farmers are now growing wheat, potatoes or other crops. "I'm a man of action and that's why I like what the United Nations is doing here, action -- mine action. We are not just talking about it, but taking action to solve this problem," he said. "I'm here to be educated and then educate people about an issue that can be solved with the proper levels of funding." UNMAS is located in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations Office of Rule of Law and Security Institutions. UNMAS website: http://www.mineaction.org/

A Deminer's Story – Mine Action in Afghanistan
In mid-2015 a film company asked UNMAS headquarters if there was any country programmes who would support the production of a television show on dangerous jobs. They wanted to profile the work and life of a deminer. We submitted a proposal and were fortunate to be selected. We assisted the production company and its director and photographer: Sylvain Braun and Christian Lamontagne. And they have produced a special version of their television show just for us. It is 24 minutes long but here uploaded a shortened version, 6 minutes only. The film portrays the reality that demining is more than just a job. It is as much a service to the nation as that of police and soldiers. And, as you will see, just as dangerous.

More explosions on the horizon STORYLINE: Without firing a shot, Kurdish militiamen moved closer on Saturday to the key prize of the north - Kirkuk and its oil fields - after Iraqi forces staged a sudden withdrawal to possibly plug defences targeted by US airstrikes. Iraqi soldiers fell back at least 20 kilometres (12 miles) late on Friday to apparently regroup near Perdeh - also known as Altun Kupri - about 45 kilometres (27 miles) from Kirkuk, which is Iraq's No. 2 oil producing region. The United States has only about 12 hundred paratroopers and some special forces at its disposal in the Kurdish autonomous region - a force too small to directly challenge Saddam's military, although reinforcements and heavier firepower are expected. Several hours after the Iraqi pull-out Kurdish militiamen moved in to clear scores of land mines and check bunkers. Meanwhile US warplanes continued to attack targets in the direction of Kirkuk.

These men are working with the Halo Trust - a British-funded mine clearance organisation. There are approximately 3-hundred de-miners working on the four kilometre stretch of road. The organisation believes there could be up to 10-thousand mines in this area - which was the frontline during battles between the Northern Alliance and the Taliban. Fourteen teams - each with 22 members - have been working here for 10 days. They have so far exploded 12 mines - like the controlled explosion in these pictures. The Halo Trust says mines have been found in areas that were formerly controlled by both the Taliban and the Northern Alliance. According to the organisation, the mines are mainly Iranian, Italian and Pakistan-made - and some of them are booby trapped. Many of the mines are placed next to bombs on the roadside. During the de-mining operation, one man died when he stood on an undiscovered mine. An A-P-T-N camera crew filmed rescue teams as they managed to recover his body, by carefully pulling it away from the area. The bombs are on the edge of the road, as near as 10 cms from the edge. Just over ten percent of Afghanistan is reportedly contaminated by mines - one of the worst affected in the world.

Demining team member in suit putting on protective mask 18. Wide of team member lifting barbed wire and walking into clearance area 19. Various shots of men working in clearance area STORYLINE A group of demining specialists from Zimbabwe are working to return land and security to the Falkland islands residents almost 31 years after the conflict with Argentina. 20-thousand landmines were left behind after Britain and Argentina fought a war over the islands in 1982. Vast swathes of land are cordoned off, yet to be cleared of the bombs. While some five-thousand landmines have been accounted for since the war ended, the work of clearing land-mined areas continues. The Zimbabwe team is made up of 36 specialists, all of whom are working for British company BACTEC International, and this is their third tour on the Islands clearing mines. The team has been focused on clearing the Sapper Hill site for three months. The once popular picnic spot for Stanley residents has remained unvisited for 30 years, cordoned off by barbed wire and "Danger Mines" signs. Armed with specialist mine detectors and protective clothing, the team scour the windswept landscape searching for bombs. Sometimes they are hampered by the terrain, with the long wet grass affecting the ability of the detectors to find mines that are buried deep in the earth. The team's operations manager, Phillimon Gonamombe, said he was proud to be involved in such humanitarian work. "We want to remove the threat from the community," he said. The team are searching for a variety of land mines across a huge area and everything has to be carefully documented inside the makeshift office inside a shipping container. "They are an extremely experienced bunch of guys," said British Foreign Office Representative Guy Marot. "At the end of the day, you want real experts to actually do this, particularly sort of difficult job," added Marot.

MaximsNewsNetwork: 05 April 2010 - UNAMA: Afghanistan - Dozens of de-miners wearing blue uniforms and face-protecting helmets commemorated the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action with local, United Nations and United States officials in Afghanistan today (4 April). More than 10,000 deminers and associated staff work in Afghanistan implementing the UN-supported the Mine Action Programme of Afghanistan (MAPA); about 40 Afghans a month are now injured or killed by mines, about one quarter the number for 2002. De Mistura, who was involved with clearing areas of mines for the return of Afghan refugees when he worked in the country 22 years ago, noted that since then, more than 15,000 minefields and battlefields, have been cleared, and millions of Afghans have received mine risk education throughout the country. He told the crowd gathered at the compound of the Organization for Mine Clearance and Afghan Rehabilitation (OMAR) that Afghanistan is no longer a problem but is an example when it came to the clearance of mines. De Mistura joined Abdul Martin Adrak, general director of the Afghanistan Natural Disaster Management Authority, United States Ambassador Karl Eikenberry and Canadian Ambassador William Crosbie in saluting deminers and other mine action staff at the ceremony. One of the Afghan deminers who works for OMAR said that despite the dangers of the job, it is his honor to do it to save the lives of our people from mines. Five demining implementing partners were represented at the event: Afghanistan Technical Consultants, Mine Clearance and Planning Agency, HALO Trust, the Demining Agency for Afghanistan and OMAR. These organizations have removed hundreds of thousands of landmines and millions of other explosive remnants of war, helping some 1,370 Afghan communities to be declared mine-free. ................................................................................................................

Finance squeeze hits Afghan mine clearers
(20 Jun 2017) Afghans who scratch out a living by removing some of the country's countless land mines have long had to contend with rugged terrain, accidental explosions and the threat of kidnapping. These days however they also face the added risk of being laid off. A financial crisis in recent years has forced the country to cut back on efforts to remove explosives left over from decades of conflict - buried bombs that kill and maim dozens of people every month and render precious farming and grazing land unusable. The HALO Trust Organisation, which has been carrying out mine-clearing efforts since 1988, has had to lay off 1,000 de-miners, and now employs just 2,400 Afghans. Over the same three years, the Taliban have widened their reach and an Islamic State group affiliate has risen in the east. Aid agencies have been forced to scale back operations, and funding has dried up as they scramble to address crises in other parts of the world. Afghanistan remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world, with millions of people living within 500 metres (yards) of a minefield, according to Farid Ahmad Homayoun, HALO's Afghanistan country director. Wali Mohammad, a 32-year-old de-miner, spends long hours roaming the mountains south of Kabul, looking for mines left over from the Soviet occupation in the 1980s. Like other de-miners, he wears a protective helmet and visor as well as gloves to protect his hands from snakes and scorpions. The painstaking work pays 300 US dollars a month, barely enough to support his wife and eight children, who live as refugees in neighbouring Pakistan. At least 90 de-miners have been killed and more than 120 wounded since 2010, according to government figures. Another 720 have been kidnapped, though all but seven were later freed through military operations or tribal negotiations. Around 140 people, mostly women and children, are killed or wounded by land mines or roadside bombs every month, according to the government, said Wais Ahmad Barmak, the state minister for disaster management and humanitarian affairs, which oversees mine removal. A far bigger threat, for many, is another round of layoffs. Some 5,000 de-miners have been let go since 2014, when the US and NATO formally concluded their combat mission and switched to a support and counterterrorism role. The government has set the ambitious goal of clearing all the country's known minefields by 2023, but that looks increasingly unattainable, especially since armed groups are actively planting new roadside bombs. The shortage of funding and manpower will have a "huge impact" on the government's ability to reach its target, said Barmak. Gul Hassan, a 25-year-old de-miner, says he had to accept the difficult job to support his four children. He is still haunted by an accident a year ago, when a blast tore off his co-worker's hands. But he takes pride in his work, which allows impoverished communities to reclaim much-needed land. "When any of my countrymen can live freely and without fear it makes me proud," he said.

According to initial reports, the first anti-personnel mine was tripped by a civilian contractor working for a Danish agency in clearing mines south of the airfield. An ambulance belonging to the agency hit another mine nearby as it was coming to his aid. According to a statement from the Public Affairs Office at Bagram, the dead and injured included mine-clearing workers and bystanders. The injured were being treated at the Spanish Hospital and the US Army Hospital, both on Bagram Air Base. No other details were immediately available. Afghanistan is one of the most heavily mined countries in the world. Coalition troops and civilian contractors have been working for months to clear the mines around Bagram, once a Russian base and a front line of fighting between the Taliban and the northern alliance.

Mali - Mine Action is Humanitarian Action
Since the outbreak of conflict in 2012, explosive hazards have presented a new threat in Mali. Civilians living in areas affected by explosive remnants of war (ERW) as a result of clashes, returnees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) have been exposed to potential loss of life and injury. UNMAS implements, supports and coordinates humanitarian mine action activities, which include survey, marking and clearance of prioritised dangerous areas, risk education on explosive threats and victim assistance.

HALO's work in Afghanistan
Afghanistan is one of the most mine-affected countries in the world, with estimates of up to 640,000 land mines laid since 1979. HALO began operating in Afghanistan in 1988 and now employ 2,400 Afghans. Our mission in Afghanistan is to save lives and prevent injury through the clearance of contaminated land and the removal of unexploded ordnance. Over the past 20 years that HALO has been working in Afghanistan, almost 80% of all recorded mine and UXO contaminated land in Afghanistan has been cleared. Much progress has been made, though the remaining 570 square kilometres of minefield means there is still some way to go to help Afghanistan meet its obligation to ensure clearance of all recorded hazards by 2023. In this video, HALO calls upon donors to help make a mine-free Afghanistan a reality.

Various shots of a dog and handler searching out and uncovering a dummy mine 4. De-mining expert with dummy mine 5. Close shot dummy mine with dog in background 5. Setup shot for Mario Boer, Head of Mine Detection and Dog Centre 6. SOUNDBITE (German) Mario Boer, Kabul Mine Detection and Dog Centre: "We can produce puppies ourselves, we can select the right ones according to their capabilities for the job we do here in conditions we have here in Afghanistan. We need fifty to sixty puppies this year because we have a lot over-aged dogs now" 7.Various of dogs and their trainers 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Jowad Ahmad, dog trainer: "We start the training when (the dogs) are two month old and the first stage of training is called 'socialisation training.' This stage takes about six months. We familiarise the dog with the people, environment and transportation system and everything around the dog. After this stage of training we have 'basic ball training' - in this stage we make the dog search for a (flavoured) rubber ball and we introduce the rubber ball to the dog as a playing tool or toy for the dog. This stage also takes six to eight months, after that we have 'explosives training' which takes four to six months" Near Bagram airport, 30 kilometers north of Kabul 9. Various shots of trained dogs with de-mining teams searching for land mines and unexploded ordnance STORYLINE: A programme in Kabul to train specialists and search dogs to find and disarm millions of deadly landmines strewn around the war-torn country has been expanded as Afghanistan settles into a kind of peace. Twenty years of war, first between the Soviet Union forces and the Mujahaddin resistance, and later between the Mujahaddin and the Taliban, have left Afghanistan strewn with land mines and unexploded ammunition. There are currently 87 dogs undergoing training at the Mine Detection and Dog Centre in Kabul, sponsored by the German and Japanese governments. About 200 dogs from the centre are already in the field, working with de-mining teams around the country. Each dog spends 18 months in various stages of training for the job, starting before dawn to spare the dogs the heat of the Afghan summer. The dogs, mostly german and belgian shepherds, are descendants of the first of their breeds that were brought from Germany about eight years ago. Initially, experienced dogs were brought from Europe, but they found their new home confusing and unsettling. Now the centre breeds its own puppies so its dogs are familiar with the conditions in Afghanistan. Specialists say there some 50 different types of land mines to be found in Afghanistan. Dogs are trained to recognise TNT (tri-nitro toluene), an explosive commonly found in most land mines. The dogs are trained to move carefully around dangerous areas, and few of the animals have been harmed in the work. Once they detect the smell of TNT, the dogs are trained to sit next to spot as a signal to a team of human deminers to identify and defuse the device. Working in pairs with their handlers, dogs can comb an area to determine if it is finally clear from mines and safe to be declared "mine free," Specialists say that, used correctly, "dog approval" is safer than other means of demining an area of land..

Soft Occupation. Investigating America’s influence on German politics
Investigative journalist Jurij Kofner is a German citizen. To question the extent to which his country’s policy decisions are influenced by America’s agenda, he explores Germany’s post-war history to understand how relations with the US were formed. He also looks into the dynamics of the two countries’ cooperation under the umbrella of NATO. Today, America’s largest permanent military operation outside the US is in Germany. The American government uses Ramstein as a base for its controversial drone operations. Local citizens, who question the legitimacy of the arrangement, discover they have no say in what some foreign powers can do in their own country. In 2013 it emerged that the German chancellor and other politicians had been spied on by American Intelligence. The phone tapping scandal damaged trust between the countries and raised questions about whether theirs was truly a relationship between equal partners. Jurij Kofner meets politicians, independent journalists and other independent experts; they all suggest that America’s meddling in Germany’s affairs didn’t end at just tapping phone lines. According to some, American NGOs wield influence over German media by offering journalists “grants” in return for writing articles that steer readers towards sympathy with American interests. There’s also a US-funded youth education programme that allegedly seeks to indoctrinate Germany’s young people with a US-friendly agenda.

Cambodia's Female Demining Teams Clear Their Country of War's Remnants
Clearing Cambodia of its deadly land mines was long considered a man's job, but now, women deminers of Cambodia are entering the field to help prevent further tragedies. The mines were laid by successive governments during 30 years of war, primarily along the border with Thailand, to stop the return of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime which had committed genocide on its own people. The Halo Trust recruits all-female demining teams to clear the land and make it safe again. A film by Didem Tali

English/Khmer/Nat An estimated nine (m) million mines lie undiscovered in Cambodia - one for every person - and every month hundreds of new victims are killed or severely injured. The disabled victims are usually forced to beg to earn a living. But in a radical attempt to remove the menace and give the victims a decent living, a British mine-clearing charity has recruited 56 amputees to help in its work. This man is preparing to blow up the same type of mine that blew his leg off. Now fitted with a prosthesis, he's back in the minefield - working to rid Cambodia of a modern scourge. All of these men and women have lost legs from land mines. Now they're learning to make the most of their skills at the Mines Advisory Group training centre. The British charity is teaching them to neutralise the very weapons that caused their injuries. From a population of nine (m) million, it is estimated that one in every 236 people has lost a limb. Working with the M-A-G not only gives these individuals a living, it helps to clear the land so that others can work on it - without fear. SOUNDBITE: "Unfortunately being an amputee here means it's very difficult to have gainful employment to support family. So we have given them that. The wider issue is that they want the land cleared. When the newly injured wake up to discover they have lost a limb, they face bleak odds. Most Cambodians refuse to employ amputees, believing their injuries to be karma for a bad past life. International aid projects like this prosthesis factory try to employ as many as possible. Now the hiring of amputees to destroy mines takes rehabilitation one step further. SUPER CAPTION: Russ Bedford, Mines Advisory Group This man is waking up in hospital to find he has lost his leg - another mine victim. Anti-personnel mines aren't designed to kill, they are designed to seriously injure - most victims lose legs or arms or are blinded. But despite their injuries many are desperate to undertake skilled work again. And demining is one of the most skilled jobs of all. Thousands of amputees applied to join the course, eager to escape the miserable future which most mine victims face in Cambodia. SOUNDBITE: (Khmer) "I know what it feels like to step on a mine. It's so very painful and hard to see your leg gone. The poor hard life of an amputee forces me to do this job." SUPER CAPTION: Or Loun, De-mining worker A Cambodian soldier earns just 17 U-S dollars per month. Those who are selected and pass the training course will earn 10 times that amount. Both men and women can be de-miners. Mom Sok Phay was a medical assistant who hit a mine while picking vegetables. SOUNDBITE: (Khmer) "It's not a strange job, as most women work hard in the paddy fields. We work as hard as men. So we can do the same with mines." SUPER CAPTION: Mom Sok Phay, De-mining worker It's stressful work. Mines have to identified, marked and either deactivated or blown up with explosives. One false move could be fatal. But with meticulous training, M-A-G say the dangers of demining can be minimised. SOUNDBITE: "Of course its a difficult job, but the risks can be properly assessed and if the rules are followed the risk is minimised." SUPER CAPTION: Russ Bedford, Mines Advisory Group Officials at M-A-G say they will monitor the amputee deminers to ensure the project is not putting them at any higher risk than the rest of the team. But so far the project is a success - and the victims of Cambodia's mines are turning the tables on their enemy.

UNIFIL and UNMAS hail partnership in de-mining in south Lebanon
The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) and the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) today highlighted the achievements realized together in south Lebanon while vowing to continue the dangerous but life-saving undertaking of clearing landmines. In his remarks at a ceremony marking the International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action in the UNIFIL Headquarters in Naqoura, UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Major General Michael Beary hailed mine action activities conducted jointly with UNMAS and Lebanon Mine Action Center (LMAC). He added that UNIFIL de-miners to date have cleared over 4,300 square metres of land and safely removed and destroyed 800 anti-personnel mines within its 1,060 square kilometre area of operation (AO) in south Lebanon. He also highlighted the benefits of the mine risk education given to over 1,500 children in the last year, saving lives and increasing the level of engagement between UNIFIL and the people of Lebanon. “These efforts conducted in partnership with our Lebanese colleagues is a demonstration of our commitment to creating a safer environment for the people of south Lebanon,” said Major General Beary. “Landmines and other explosive remnants of war not only endanger the lives of UNIFIL personnel, but also of local populations throughout the AO.” He especially praised the work done by UNIFIL’s core de-mining teams from Cambodia and China. “I wish to publicly acknowledge their professionalism and courage as they set about this work,” he said. Despite progress, the UNIFIL head added, there are approximately 1,000 minefields along the Blue Line. Some of them are located in close proximity to UN positions. He said the “insidious menace of landmines” should be addressed by continuing to work together. “It is a huge imperative for us to keep working to try an ensure that we make south Lebanon, and other parts of the world safer through the work of UNMAS and in this mission UNIFIL,” he added. Major General Beary also read out the message of UN Secretary-General António Guterres on this year’s International Mine Awareness Day, which is observed globally under the theme “Advancing Protection, Peace and Development.” On 8 December 2005, the UN General Assembly declared that 4 April of each year shall be observed as the International Mine Awareness Day, calling on Member States to enhance national mine-action capacities in countries where mines and explosive remnants of war constitute a serious threat. Addressing today’s ceremony in Naqoura, UNMAS Acting Programme Manager for Lebanon, Sarah Holland, praised the partnership forged in south Lebanon with UNIFIL, LMAC and local community leaders in both clearing landmines and educating the communities. “As we commemorate Mine Awareness Day, we are proud of the achievements that we have realized together, and bravely acknowledge the task that lies before us,” she said. “Today, let us recommit ourselves to striving for peace and stability here in South Lebanon; and for an environment that is free of landmines and other explosive remnants of war.” At today’s event, UNMAS and UNIFIL de-miners also displayed a simulation of mine clearance activities involving robots and other de-mining equipment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Article: Tilak Pokharel Video camera & edit: Aoibheann O’Sullivan & Mohamad Hamze Music: Calling Instrumental by Dexter Britain Translators: Hanady Younes & Adib Al-Moussa Stills: Mohamad Hamze & Pascual Gorriz -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

US Marines Demining ISIS Rockets on Al-Asad Airbase in Iraq
US Marines Demining ISIS Rockets on Al-Asad Airbase in Iraq A group of US Marines stationed in Iraq on the Al Asad airbase, demining with explosive the remain of unexploded little explosive shell from what it look like a cluster bomb rocket (maybe a Egyptian Sakr 122mm cargo rockets stolen from Syrian army ammo stock) after an ISIS rocket attack on US army (US marines) position. US military ground force in Iraq are just here for supervising the Iraqi army as part of the operation inherent resolve, they are not officially involved in combat with ISIS. The demining or mine clearance is the process of removing both landmines and naval mines from an area, while the term minesweeping describes the act of mine detection. There are two different types of mine detection and clearance: military and humanitarian. Among the areas of active combat, the term "demining" is preferably used. The priority for demining in a zone of active combat to speed the process rather than the accuracy is granted. Once the military activity has been reduced, usually it changes the focus to get a deeper demining, and the term "clearance" is used more often. Minesweepers use many tools in order to accomplish their task. Among these tools they have historically included many trained animals such as dogs and rats, but more frequently in the modern world minesweepers rely on metal detectors or vehicles with a wide variety of coupled power tools. There are or have been developed other methods for the detection of mines, including the use of trained marine mammals, bacteria, noise, and other more exotic methods. A cluster munition, also known bomb munitions (cluster bombs) and rocket munitions, is a container carrying many other explosive projectiles, smaller in size, say "bomblets". This ammunition "anti-material" or "anti-personnel" can treat large areas by requiring less ammunition than conventional ammunition.

MaximsNewsNetwork: 18 December 2009 - UNAMA: Afghanistan - Afghanistans road system, damaged by decades of war and a serious impediment to economic growth, faces reconstruction and rehabilitation. Without critical infrastructure such as road system, many of Afghanistans provinces are cut off from access to vital services such as education and healthcare. Today, the Afghan government works with the World Bank and UN Office for Partnerships (UNOPS) to build roads through its National Rural Access Program (NRAP). This programme recruits locals to build and rehabilitate thousands of kilometers of roads linking rural areas to city centers. Mohammad Rasol, a local road construction worker, says that a trip to Kabul from the countrys central highlands often takes days on foot and road. Now with a new road, the trip will be cut by half. SOUNDBITE (Dari) Mohammad Rasol, Afghan Road Construction Worker: We are very happy with the work being done here. Also we appreciate the Governments initiative. When the construction of this road ends, the journey time to Kabul will be cut by half which means one and half day. According to UNOPS, the benefits of the programme are countless. A new road system will improve accessibility, open rural businesses up for regional and national markets and lead to better allocation of resources, technology transfer and higher productivity. SOUNDBITE (English) Sayeed Khan Ahmadzai, Road Engineer, UN Office for Partnerships (UNOPS): The main aim of NRAP is to enhance womens security and also the economic growth of the community by the around access in the year to provide facilities and access to health services. The programme is also creating jobs and has, so far, generated over 12 million labour days for the locals. Zalmai, another road construction worker, is grateful that through the programmet he is able to find work and feed his family. SOUNDBITE (Dari) Zalmai, Afghan Road Construction Worker: I am working now at the first part of this road from Matak to Bameyan. I am happy to have this opportunity to earn some money to feed my family and therefore I thank the government for this project. The ongoing road construction that links the central provinces such as Bamiyan is expected to end this year. Next year, the programme will include the rehabilitation of roads across Afghanistans northern region. So far over 9,000 kilometers of roads have been constructed or rehabilitated connecting rural Afghanistan in all 34 provinces. ...................

We find tens of thousands of these here in Afghanistan. It's Russian manufactured, but it has been bought and sold around the world by many different nations. It's anti-personnel. It would normally cause an amputation in adult, but a child stepping on this would have very little chance of survival. It would probably kill a child." 23.

It doesn't mean you're only equipping people with artificial limbs and rehabilitation and showing them how to walk again. It's more than that, it's showing them that there's life even when you're disabled. The fact that the International Red Cross hires a lot of disabled people to work in the centres, to make the prosthese and to carry out rehabilitation with the patients, it's a great thing for the patients because it shows them that even without legs you can still work, you have a job, you can do things and that life is not finished." 32. Man putting on prostheses 33. Patients on hospital veranda STORYLINE: Afghanistan is probably the most mined country in the world. Estimates say that up to 640-thousand mines have been laid since 1979. The Halo Trust is a non-political, non-religious British-registered charity that specialises in the removal of the debris of war. The charity employs more than 1-thousand Afghan deminers. Operations extend from Kabul and the surrounding districts, north through the Shonali valley and the Salang Pass, through the proximities of Baghlam, Kunduz, Samangan and Balkh. By far the most common anti-personnel mines in Afghanistan are the Russian PMN-2s. These mines account for the majority of deaths in the country. SOUNDBITE: (English) Nigel Robinson, Halo Trust (OVER CUTAWAYS) Here in Pulecharkhi, east of Kabul, a team headed by a Halo Trust Afghan disposal deminers takes place. A quantity of mines, bombs and rockets are disposed of here. Charges and plastic explosives are placed around the munition and a controlled detonation takes place.
