Colombo: The US has donated de-mining equipment for Sri Lanka`s war-ravaged northern region, the island nation`s government said in a statement Thursday.

De-mining continues in the country`s north as thousands of civilians who were displaced due to the 30-year conflict are looking at being resettled back home.
