A U.S. de-mining company is removing explosives and training Iraqis to dismantle the devices planted by Islamic State in the largest Iraqi city retaken from the militants http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/hassan-whiteside/ , a diplomat and two U.S. officials said on Monday.


Hundreds of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) planted throughout the streets and buildings of Ramadi, 100 km (60 miles) west of Baghdad http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/dion-waiters/ , have delayed the return of around half a million displaced residents since the Iraqi military backed by U.S. air strikes recaptured the city three months ago.


The United Nations and the governor of Anbar province, of which Ramadi is the capital http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/dwyane-wade/ , have said a shortage of Iraqi experts - military or civilian - trained in dismantling the explosives has slowed efforts to restore security. Several of the technicians have also been killed by snipers.


The Iraqi government's strained finances have also limited its ability to secure and rebuild areas recaptured from Islamic State including the northern cities of Tikrit, Baiji and Sinjar. De-mining will be a critical first step in returning civilians to most of these areas.


The United States said on Monday it was allocating $5 million for the contract with Tennessee-based Janus Global Operations Inc http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/alonzo-mourning/ , which bills itself as "the largest commercial munitions management and de-mining company in the world".


The company has experience operating in challenging environments, including Afghanistan and Somalia http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/goran-dragic/ , Janus Global President Alan Weakley said in a statement.


"Janus, this weekend http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/ , began moving equipment and people into Iraq to address this clearance effort and will begin removing these hazards as quickly as we can," he said.


Weakley said the company on Monday changed its name to Janus Global Operations from Sterling Global Operations.


A U.S. official told Reuters that Norway also had agreed to kick in $5 million and another $5 million was expected to come from other partners in the U.S.-led coalition battling Islamic State in Iraq and neighbouring Syria.


A senior diplomat in Baghdad confirmed the contract http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/udonis-haslem/ , adding that both Iraqi and foreign nationals would be engaged in de-mining activities. It was not clear which countries the foreigners will come from.


Coalition advisers supporting Iraq's military did not set foot in Ramadi during the months-long battle to recapture it. A spokesman for the coalition said its forces would not be involved in protecting Janus' teams, which are expected to comprise around 40 individuals.


A team of international experts arrived in Ramadi last week and conducted reconnaissance http://www.cheapnbaheatshop.com/justise-winslow/ , according to Anbar Governor Sohaib al-Rawi.


About 3,000 families returned over the weekend to districts that have been cleared of mines and explosives. But they are relying on electricity generators and water pumped from the nearby Euphrates River since public services have not been repaired.
