Bees buzz over landmines after detection training

Text size Aa Aa

Croatian researchers have trained bees to detect land mines by associating the scent of the bees’ sugary food with the smell of explosives.

During the Balkan War two decades ago, 90,000 mines were buried across the country, according to a government estimate.

Some 2,500 people in Croatia have been killed by them since 1991.
