[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
In 2005/6, a total of 14,936 weapons seized and recovered through police activities were destroyed by the MoI at the US Steel facility in Smederevo.
With financial support from the Federal Republic of Germany and assistance from UNDP's SALW Control in Serbia and Montenegro (SACISCG) programme, additional SALW (7,018 weapons) were destroyed in December 2005 and March 2006 (7,918 weapons).
Both weapon destruction events received extensive coverage in the media.
