On 10 of June 2010 the first day of operation in task 0040, all the team members had been briefed by team leader about the location and extent of contamination in the area. The deminers were tasked to establish admin. parking areas, control marking and create the baseline. The team members also started clearance operations in some lanes and the deminer [the Victim] was tasked to follow the marking of already cleared lanes. But because of the break time he left the area and entered into the task seeking a shadow to take break there. He wanted to enter to a mosque located inside the hazard area, on the way to the mosque he stepped on an IED, caused it to go off, so the fatal accident occurred and [the Victim] died in the spot.
