Dismantling landmines in Colombia, this week on Americas Now

Colombia, the country with the largest number of landmines planted across its territory, is trying to get rid of them.

In the mine-infested mountains of Antioquia, the task of locating and deactivating the explosives is ongoing.

CCTV America’s Toby Muse reports, “They don’t see that it will harm the civilians, only that it will stop the army and will defend them. They don’t see that civilians will walk on these mines.”

Preparing for peace can be an arduous and perilous enterprise. Watch Americas Now Sunday at 7pm EST. Watch CCTV America LIVE on your computer, tablet or mobile
