Iraq and Iran fought a war from September 1980 to August 1988, making it the longest conventional war of the 20th century. While the war ended in 1988 after much death and devastation, the clearing of mine fields in Iran is still an ongoing operation. These photos show mine-removal crew busy at work in the border town of Dehloran in western Iran.
