Anti-tank mine kills three in explosion

Three Cambodian men were killed and another three injured when they triggered an anti-tank mine after illegally crossing into Thailand on Friday, an official said yesterday. Touch Ra, deputy chief of the Cambodia-Thailand Border Relations Office at the Choam Sa-Ngam border checkpoint in Oddar Meanchey province, said he suspected the men were logging when the mine detonated, three kilometres inside Thai territory. He said authorities retrieved the bodies of the deceased on Friday and returned them to their families in Oddar Meanchey’s Tumnob Aphiwat village, where funerals were held for them. The three injured men were rushed to hospital in Anlong Veng district, Oddar Meanchey province, and one man was later transferred to a facility in Siem Reap in serious condition, Touch Ra said.
