      Land mines to be cleared in ancient city of Karkamis
      Zaman [Turkey], 23 October 2009

      A tender for the clearance of land mines by hand in the ancient city of
      Karkamis, located on the mined Syrian border in Gaziantep, has been won
      by Nokta Yatırım with a bid of TL 1.1 million. The company
      will begin to clear the minefield once a contract is signed and the area
      is consigned to them. It will be the first time land mines will be
      removed by hand in Turkey. The task is expected to be completed within
      300 days. Once the land mines are removed from the archaeological site,
      the centuries-old history of Karkamis will be revealed through
      excavations, turning the city into a tourist attraction. Universities in
      Japan, Italy and the US have already made requests to carry out
      excavations.
