Prince Harry visits Angola to see mine clearance

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry is visiting Angola to see mine clearance efforts there with a charity championed by his late mother, Princess Diana.

The HALO Trust charity said Saturday that Harry will be touring minefields and meeting beneficiaries of the organization’s work in the southern African nation.

HALO said Harry also will visit the densely-mined town of Cuito Cuanavale, a scene of heavy fighting during Angola’s 1975-2002 civil war.

Diana highlighted the trust’s work on a visit to a minefield being cleared by the organization in Angola in 1997.

Harry visited minefields with HALO in Mozambique in 2010.
