We have not specifically assessed the presence of unexploded world war two ordnance in Libya. However, we are working with the UN and international partners to address the very serious issue of unexploded ordnance and weapons contamination caused during the recent uprising. This is preventing Libyan people from returning to their homes and we are urging our allies to increase their contribution to the UN Mine Action Service and other NGOs in order to help the stabilisation and reconstruction of Libya.
