POIPET RESIDENTS DODGE LAND MINE
Residents in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town are breathing a sigh of relief after a land mine disguised as rubbish was destroyed by the Cambodian Mine Action Centre. An unidentified man drove up to the front of a medical clinic and placed the K58 mine along with bags of rubbish, a witness said yesterday. The ploy fooled the witness, but luckily the mine raised the suspicions of one of the clinic’s cleaners, who promptly informed police. Residents speculated that the man was acting on behalf of a rival business owner who was jealous of the clinic’s success. Police investigations are ongoing.
