The UN Mine Action Centre in Cyprus (UNMACC) held an open day event for the media and invited guests inside the UN Protected Area on January 20, 2011 to mark 6 years of successful work on the island, having cleared more than 27,000 landmines once strewn along the 180-kilometre long buffer zone.

The UN-contracted de-miners, who will shut down their current operations on the island next month, put on demonstrations for local and international media, giving them a glimpse of what it was like to be a de-miner for the day.
