Johnny Thomsen (left), an explosive ordnance disposal technician, inspects on June 16 a 240mm air to ground rocket which was damaged but not destroyed by a NATO air strike in Misrata, the besieged Libyan city where civilians and rebel forces are surrounded on three sides by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi. With him is Elsadiq Ez-Zain, an engineer with the Libyan Red Crescent. Thomsen, from Denmark, is part of a team from the ACT Alliance which arrived in Misrata on June 13. He works with the humanitarian mine action program of DanChurchAid, which is a member of the ACT Alliance. The group is concerned about the threat posed to the civilian population of the area by unexploded ordnance.  Photo by Paul Jeffrey/ACT Alliance.
