Who are the people that clear land mines?

Groups of highly-trained 'deminers' have been travelling between Zimbabwe and the Falkland Islands to clear minefields for over 11 years.

Over 20,000 land mines were laid by Argentine forces in 1982, and in 2020 the Falkland Islands will be landmine free for the first time in 38 years. Due to the global pandemic, most of the men involved have left the Islands before the completion of the project. 

Falklands Radio attended a goodbye reception on June 19 and spoke to those who were departing.
