One killed, three hurt in two mine explosions

One man was killed and two others seriously injured in a mine explosion in Takeo province’s Tram Kak district yesterday, police said.

The three men were clearing forest to build a home when one stepped on the mine, said deputy district police chief Cheng Chantra.

The explosion killed Yoem Sarath, 48, and injured Oeun Odom and Moa Poa, he said.

“They are newcomers, so they did not know the area was danger­ous,” he added. In a separate incident in Battambang province yesterday, a 49-year-old man lost an eye when a fire in front of his Bour commune house set off a mine, said commune chief Keot Chinda.
