Anti-tank mine injures driver, destroys tractor

An anti-tank mine explosion injured one man and severely damaged the tractor he was driving yesterday in Banteay Meanchey’s O’Chruv district. The incident occurred while the victim, hired by a local rice farmer, was cultivating a paddy field in Samrong commune. “The mine slightly injured the driver and severely damaged the tractor,” said Sar Chhong, police chief of O’Chrov district, adding that the field had been cultivated without incident since 1997 and he could not say how long the mine might have been hidden in the paddy field.
