Teen dies when old rocket explodes in field

One teenager died and three other children were injured on Friday when a Khmer-Rouge era rocket exploded in Kampong Speu province.

Phnom Sroch district police chief Say Bunthan said that a 17-year-old cowherd, along with two boys, 8 and 10, and a girl, 10, had taken their cows to graze near Kraing Lahong village when they discovered the discarded B-40 rocket and started to throw stones at it.

The 17-year-old, who suffered wounds to his head and torso, died en route to the hospital.
