Pursat villager finds hand grenades in kettle

Five unexploded hand grenades – four from Russia and one from China – were found on Monday inside a kettle by a villager in Pursat’s Bakan district.

District chief Yem Yeurng, who couldn’t identify the specific type of grenades, said they were common in his district, but they had not caused any fatalities.

Rom Lich police post deputy chief Seng Serey said villager Yors Ra, 59, was clearing the pumpkin patch behind her house when she came across the grenade-filled kettle.

“I informed the district chief about these unexploded grenades, and requested that someone from the Cambodian Mine Action Centre come pick them up,” Serey said.
