Mosul: risk education on explosive remnants of war for returnees

Heavy fighting in Mosul has displaced more than 430,000 civilians since October. More than 90,000 of them have already returned to their towns and villages, which have been recaptured by the armed forces. Handicap International organises risk education sessions on explosive remnants of war to alert people to the risks they are now likely to face.
