Cambodia News (Svay Rieng): On May 21, 2020, at 4:30 am, a mine that was left over from the war exploded, killing three grazing buffaloes in Tabeb village, Bavet City, Svay Rieng. The buffaloes' owner was identified as Meach Trou, a 29-year-old man, a farmer.

The buffaloes were eating grass on land outside the village when the mine exploded during the night.
The police and CMAC team went to check the scene and they put up a caution sign to beware of mines. Fortunately, there was nobody injured in the explosion. The dead buffaloes were returned to the owner for funeral rites.

I'm surprised they still have unexploded ordinance in Svay Rieng.

That's the problem (hit or miss) sorry for the pun, but they could have drove buffalo over the land in hope to get some, also eradicating some danger before the mine sweepers moved in. One of the big problems, due to rainy season the landmines move around, also some are of plastic construction so hard to detect.

I wonder how many guys will be getting texts from the gals saying family buffalo exploded, "send money new buffalo quick"

I noticed the area, Svay Rieng, I thought the mines were in the north east.
