News feed

Go to the Latest sector news page for online coverage on landmines, small arms and light weapons, unexploded ordnance and related issues.


MAG works in current and former conflict zones, to reduce the threat of death and injury from remnants of conflict. These include anti-personnel and anti-vehicle landmines, as well as rockets, missiles, mortars, grenades, ammunition, small arms and light weapons, and many more types of deadly items.

So we don’t just carry out plain landmine or bomb clearance – some of our projects aren’t even about landmines. We can provide spokespeople on a wide range of topics.

To arrange an interview please contact Clare Hargreaves, Media & PR Officer:; telephone +44 (0)161 238 5445 or +44 (0)7979 343969.


Award-winning photographer Sean Sutton has been working with MAG for 15 years and had amassed an archive of awe-inspiring images of communities affected by conflict. We can make these photographs available to media outlets on request.
