Fred Pavey (left) and Johnny Thomsen, explosive ordnance disposal technicians, neutralize an improvised explosive device alongside a heavily traveled road in Misrata, the besieged Libyan city where civilians and rebel forces are surrounded on three sides by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, on June 15. Thomsen, from Denmark, and Pavey, from the United Kingdom, are part of a team from the ACT Alliance which arrived in Misrata on June 13. They work with the humanitarian mine action program of DanChurchAid, which is a member of the ACT Alliance. The device used a Claymore-type mine connected to both victim- and command-activated switches. Photo by Paul Jeffrey/ACT Alliance.
