Darfur mission marks International Day for Mine Awareness

Listen /

Unexploded ordnance and other remnants of war have killed more than 220 civilians in the Darfur region of Sudan since 2005.

They also threaten the work of peacekeepers delivering humanitarian aid to scores of people displaced by conflict.

The Ordnance Disposal Office at the African Union-United Nations Mission in Darfur (UNAMID) has been locating and destroying these hazards, as well as educating people about the danger they pose.

This Tuesday, 4 April, marked the International Day of Mine Awareness.

From El-Fasher, Darfur, Adam Ahmed of UNAMID Radio prepared this report read by Jumbe Omari Jumbe.
