From , 3:04 pm on 26 June 2017

The regional security force that has been keeping the peace in the Solomon Islands for the better part of 14 years is leaving the country this Friday.
The Regional Assistance Mission, or RAMSI as it's known, intervened in Solomon Islands after bloody ethnic fighting killed hundreds,displaced tens of thousands and brought the nation's economy to its knees.
Our reporter Koroi Hawkins is in Solomon Islands and attended the thanksgiving service that has started a week of farewells to RAMSI.
