In January 2009, the Chinese Government donated 70 sets of landmine detectors and accessories to Egypt in order to detect land mines and unexploded ordinances. Four Chinese experts were also dispatched to Egypt to train local mine-sweepers. The Chinese Government also reportedly donated mine-sweeping technology.
Some 16.7 million landmines and unexploded ordnance were left in the north African battlefield after World War II.
