Libya Littered with Arms

The 2011 revolution in Libya left the country and its population with a variety of Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) hazards, including Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) in homes and schools, ammunition and heavy weaponry left unattended, and the even more dangerous threat of newly laid minefields. The United Nations Mine Action program (UNMAS) has been on the ground clearing UXO, securing stores of ammunition across the country as well as coordinating the operations of the International NGOs.
