Mine clearance

China National Radio reported that a brigade handed unexploded mines, which were cleared from more than 6 hectares of land in Yunnan province, over to the local government on Monday.


The edge of the minefield, near the port of Tianbao, in Malipo county, on the border with northern Vietnam, was less than 100 meters from the nearest settlement.


It was the scene of fierce fighting during the border conflict between China and Vietnam in 1979, and that made it Yunnan's most complex and dangerous minefield.


The commander of the Yunnan mine clearance brigade's fourth unit, which was in charge of the mission, said the unit had found and defused about 8,200 mines and explosives, as well as 7 metric tons of metal fragments in the five months it took to clear the area.


Because the mines were so close to people's homes and dense vegetation had grown over them, the unit's soldiers had to be particularly careful when removing them.

The Malipo government announced at the handover ceremony that the newly cleared land will become the site of a new hospital.

 
Jiang Yunxiu, who lives near the now cleared minefield, suffered shrapnel injuries when a grenade exploded when she was 7. "I had always been scared since the accident," Jiang said. "Knowing that the soldiers have cleared the minefield, I feel relieved at last."

The task is part of a larger mine clearance initiative that has cleared 2,300 hectares and the government is expecting to clear the remaining 1,500 hectares this year.
