Communities in South Sudan are being supported by the UN Mine Action Service to clear remnants of war and identify areas where children’s lives are threatened by unexploded ordnance.

Toby Lanzer, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in the country, recently travelled to Magwi in Easter Equatoria State.

He said mines are a still a “terrible threat” in that area.

Denis Louro began by asking Mr Lanzer about the purpose of his visit.
