Oddar Meanchey, Cambodia News: On March 14, 2019, two men out of a team of three deminers were killed in a mine explosion in Sre Yom village, Ohsvay commune, Tropeang Prasath district, Oddar Meanchey.
The victims were identified as two young men, Hong Rachan, only 18 years old, and Mao Kamsot, 22-years-old. The two youths were killed instantly at the scene, and the other team member, Tem Buntim, 49-years-old, survived because he was further away from the detonated explosive. The three men were clearing the bush of UXOs near Sre Yom village.
The police went to the scene to collect the pieces of the victims' body and returned them to their families. RIP.

If someone was more mature with wife and kids and doing this type of job, I bet they would not be taking any risks at all.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
I gather these are not used universally all over the country..

Maybe they were trying to defuse the anti tank mine vs. just putting a packet charge next to it and blowing it up?
Anyways RIP to them and condolences to their families.
When one explodes, let the villagers have the meat.
Then again, is it any different to a Western country deliberate sending young, naive, eager for action soldiers into a war zone while the elder commanders take a step back on the pretense of overseeing the operation?
RIP to those killed and condolences to the friends and family left behind.
Cows are expensive and aren't heavy enough to set off an anti-tank mine that might be buried deep. And nobody wants to eat meat that's full of shrapnel and toxic propellants.
Now it’s just whole goats on a spit.
