A 22-year-old farmer was seriously injured when his tractor struck an unexploded ordnance while he ploughed a field in Battambang province’s Kamrieng district on Saturday. District police chief Chhun Kim Hong identified the victim as Both Chamroeun. “His tractor was completely damaged when it struck a UXO and exploded,” said Chhun Kim Hong. “His farm was not believed to contain any mines. He is lucky he did not die.” A report released by Cambodia Mine Victims Information System showed a 32 percent decrease in mine casualties from January to May this year, with 95 casualties in comparison to 114 casualties during the same period of 2010.
