 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)

B-roll of Marines with Engineer Support Company, 3rd Combat Engineer
Battalion working in direct support of 1st Battalion, 6th Marine
Regiment, to clear improvised explosive devices with mine-clearing line
charges near Route 611 in Kajaki, which was laced with IEDs. Afghan
residents had been forced to leave their homes due to the dangers
imposed by heavy IED emplacement throughout the town and insurgent
activity in the area. Marines with 1/6 are clearing insurgents from
Sangin to Kajaki along Route 611 to make it safe for Afghan residents,
local government officials, and coalition forces. The footage shows
Marines preparing their vehicles by loading mine-clearing line charges
and detonating charges to eliminate IEDs.
