Portrait of one of our mine searchers. Initially these Belgian soldiers sent to Lebanon are not deminers, they are part of an engineers unit and are there to search the smallest corners of the fields around Tebnine. Equipped with metal detectors and body protection, they excavate the fields in search of cluster bombs and, when they finally find one, mark the field for their fellow accredited deminers.
