Johnny Thomsen, a Danish explosive ordnance disposal technician, marks a Russian-built SA3 missile on June 15 at a former Libyan Air Force site outside Misrata, the besieged Libyan city where civilians and rebel forces are surrounded on three sides by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. Several missiles here were damaged in a NATO air strike, and a team from the ACT Alliance, concerned about the safety of civilians traveling a nearby road, investigated the site and marked which items need to be safely removed. Thomsen is marking this missile for removal as it still contains its warhead. Thomsen works with the humanitarian mine action program of DanChurchAid, which is a member of the ACT Alliance.
