Mine-clearers to return from Sudan

Cambodian soldiers who have been clearing mines in the Sudan for the past year are scheduled to return to the Kingdom this weekend. Sem Sovanny, director-general of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces’ National Centre for Peacekeeping Forces, Mine and Explosive Remnants of War Clearance, said the 52 soldiers would return home this Sunday. “We’ve done good work in the Sudan,” he said. “Troops have been sent to the Sudan annually for the past five years without injury.”  The RCAF was preparing to send three units of soldiers to Lebanon next year for additional mine-clearing operations, Sem Sovanny said.
