Landmines in Nicosia

The border between the Turkish and Greek communities in Nicosia, the divided capital of Cyprus, is peppered with land mines. The film shows the joint efforts by the United Nations and the European Union to clear land mines in that area making the land usable for human activities.

In 2010, the United Nations deminers in Cyprus reached the milestone of 25,000 landmines cleared.

This film was produced for UN Television and originally released in January, 2007.
