A team of Guinean peacekeepers deployed to the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali, (MINUSMA) is playing a key role in removing explosives from areas in which the mission is operating.

Mali, in West Africa, is currently the most dangerous place in the world to serve as a peacekeeper. Some 850 Guinean blue helmets are based in the volatile town of Kidal, in the north of the conflict-affected country.

Roadside bombs are a constant hazard there and it's the role of the Search and Detect team from Guinea to make sure those explosive devices do not kill or maim peacekeepers nor civilians.
