Libya at risk from unexploded munitions

Safety teams spend weeks to clear area around Ajdabiya after months of conflict.


    There is growing concern in Libya about munitions left behind by military factions following months of conflict between forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and rebels.

    Safety teams inspecting the aftermath of battle zones have found an alarming number of unexploded rockets and mines around the eastern city of Ajdabiya and have spent weeks trying to dispose all of them.

    Sue Turton reports from Ajdabiya.
