Man dies from UXO

One man died and another was injured when an unexploded ordnance detonated in Kampong Speu province’s Chbar Mon town on Monday, police said. Town police chief Meas Soeung said 31-year-old Tob Channa had found two pieces of UXO at a construction site and had thrown one against a tree, causing it to detonate. “The victim hit the UXO [to knock the dirt off] in an attempt to sell it to a buyer of recyclable materials,” he said, adding that Tob Channa had died on the way to a hospital. Construction worker Vong Sambath, 25, suffered a broken femur in the blast.
