Halo land clear

T he British-based charity Halo Trust said there was no evidence of re-mining in

the areas its teams have cleared in Banteay Meanchey and Pursat provinces

despite some of them being temporarily overrun by the Khmer Rouge during their

April/May offensive.

Matthew Middlemiss, Halo's head of mission in

Cambodia said detector, visual tests and extensive enquiries had lead him to

that conclusion.

Halo has demining teams based in Pursat town and at

Mongkol Borei just south of Sisophon.

One Western analyst said: "The KR

has been making a big effort to win hearts and minds in the countryside for the

last few months and it would be counterproductive for them to sow mines among

the rural poor."
