Updated 18 January 2012, 18:30 AEDT

The clearing of landmines in Sri Lanka looks set to be an increasing challenge, as parts of the island's north are cleared for resettlement by those displaced by the fighting.

The Mine Advisory Group is one of several organisations worldwide that specialises in clearing landmines, as well as destroying unexploded ordinance and stockpiles of weapons. In Asia, MAG works in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka.

Presenter: Liam Cochrane
