Land mine injuries continue to drop

Reported casualties from land mines and unexploded ordnance dropped in the first four months of 2010 compared to the same period last year, officials said this weekend. There were 72 casualties, which include injuries and deaths, reported for the months of January to April this year, according to the Cambodia Mine/UXO Victim Information System (CMVIS). In 2009, CMVIS recorded 117 casualties over the same period. The past four years have seen a steady decline in reported casualties, from 352 in 2007 to 244 last year. For April, the most recent month for which statistics are available, CMVIS recorded 17 new casualties, including three deaths and three amputations, from 10 separate incidents.
