A 48-YEAR-OLD man was killed and his wife and daughter were injured in Pursat province’s Kravanh district yesterday when they attempted to use a bomb to catch fish, a local official said.
Deputy district chief Mam Sarath said the family had found the unexploded bomb in a field. He said the woman suffered severe leg wounds and the daughter suffered mild injuries when the bomb was detonated.
“They are now at home in Ang Krang village,” he said.
According to a report from the Cambodian Mine/UXO (unexploded ordnance) Victim Information System, 72 people were killed by explosive remnants of war and mines in the first four months of this year.
