A soldier who allegedly threw a mine into a house in Oddar Meanchey province while drunk was charged in court yesterday with causing injury.
Thong Kosal, penal police officer in Banteay Ampil district, said five people had been seriously injured by the explosion of a Chinese made mine that Phorn Rem, 45, tossed into the house on Monday.
Phorn Rem had also suffered slight injuries on his left leg, Thong Kosal said.
He was arrested by military police the same day.
“Until now, four of the five victims are still at the provincial hospital,” Thong Kosal said.
