Man injured as tractor hits anti-tank mine

A 25-year-old man was seriously injured when an anti-tank mine exploded in a former battlefield in Battambang’s Rotanak Mondul district on late Monday. Ros Lim, district police chief, said Meach Hing was clearing land with a tractor when the device exploded. The tractor was destroyed and he received serious injuries. “He nearly died but he was saved by being taken to the hospital immediately. It is so lucky his family members did not follow him to farm,” he said.
