In Brief: Man killed by UXO in Kampot province

A man in Kampot province accidentally killed himself as he attempted to remove explosives from a bomb he had scavenged for metal, police said Saturday. Leng Hatha’s 39-year-old wife, who was six months pregnant, and his 5-year-old daughter were both killed instantly. “It happened because the husband was trying to pound the bombshell to take out the explosives,” deputy provincial police Chief In Chiva said. He said the man earned money by selling metal from unexploded ordnance, and that more than 100 bombs remained inside his house.
