A 55-year-old man and his two sons were injured earlier this week by a piece of unexploded ordnance while tilling their vegetable garden in Battambang province’s Samlot commune.
Chea Tan and his sons, Some Nul, 17, and Some Veth, 15, were planting beans and corn when the explosion occurred, said Sar Savoeun, Samlout commune police chief, who added that the father was severely wounded while his sons sustained only minor injuries.
“All the victims were found unconscious at the scene,” he said. “The father did not see the UXO, which was covered with grass.”
