Prey Veng, Cambodia News: On August 20, 2018, workers came across a grenade and an explosive device, which were found among a load of sand on a sand delivery truck in Mesang district, Prey Veng. The local people reported the discovery to the police immediately.
The police went to check the dangerous cargo, then passed on the two explosives to the CMAC (Cambodian Mine Action Centre) to be destroyed.
