Recent visits to South Lebanon by British Foreign Minister Margaret Beckett and members of the Council for Arab-British Understanding (CAABU) were hosted by MAG and the Mine Action Coordination Centre, South Lebanon (MACCSL). The Foreign Minister was taken to the town of al-Samayah to inspect a site contaminated with cluster munitions. Earlier in November the CAABU delegation were shown how MAG's operations have helped local communities.

MAG have been working clearing some of the worst hit areas in the south of the country since the ceasefire was announced.

Report and photograph by Sean Sutton

Yohmor is a village set on a hillside next to the Litani River, about ten kilometres southeast of Nabatieh and just five kilometres from the blue line - the Israeli border. Many villages in this area were repeatedly attacked and were reduced to rubble.
