Combatting roadside bombs in Afghanistan

International forces are tackling roadside bombs with advanced technology that they will teach to Afghan troops.

    Roadside bombs are responsible for almost half of the casualties among international forces in Afghanistan.

    Now explosives experts are using the latest technology to protect against such attacks.

    That technology will be shared with Afghan forces as the foreign troops prepare to leave the country.
