Another Death from UXOs; Man Steps on Mine

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Battambang, Cambodia News: Mines continue to kill in Cambodia, despite a lot of hard work by local and international NGOs. On January 23, 2019, a UXO ( unexploded ordnance) explosion in Ohromeas village, Battambang, killed a 37-year-old man, Sem Sary, when he went to cut some bamboo and accidentally trod on a mine.
Another family in mourning. RIP.
