Namibia: Anti-Fahrzeug-Mine neben viel befahrerer Straße entdeckt
Im Rahmen einer Entminungsaktion wurde zufällig eine Anti-Fahrzeug-Mine entdeckt. Kurz zuvor hatten Arbeiter noch direkt in der Nähe dieser Mine Arbeiten erledigt. Die Mine stammt noch aus dem Befreiungskrieg Namibias. (Auf Englisch)
Construction workers at Oshigambo-Eenhana could not believe their good furtune when a landmine was discovered next to the road where they have been working and travelling for years.
On Friday members of the Namibian police discovered a landmine next to one of the busiest roads between Ohangwena and Oshikoto regions during an explosives clearing and debushing exercise alongside that road.
Nampol Explosive Control Division is contracted by the Ministry of Works and Transport to screen the road in the former warzone for unexploded ordinance, as the ministry wants to expand the road.
According to Chief Inspector Walde Haikali of the Explosive Control Division, they discovered an anti-tank landmine originating in the Soviet Union. The landmine, according to Haikali, is just one of many found during the ongoing countrywide explosive clearing and de-bushing campaign.
