Cambodia is one of the most landmine-affected countries in the world. An estimated 4 to 6 million landmines and other munitions were left over from nearly three decades of war that ended in 1998.
According to the report, landmine and UXO explosions had killed 19,779 people and either injured or amputated 45,061 others from 1979 to June 2019.
CMAA’s 1st Vice-President Ly Thuch said last month that it was estimated that mines, explosive remnants of war and cluster bombs are still scattered over the area of 2,149 square kilometers in Cambodia. The Southeast Asian nation is seeking about 406 million U.S. dollars in aid to clear all types of the munitions by 2025, he said.
Secondo il rapporto pubblicato dal CMAA, nell’anno in corso gli incidenti da mine e Uxo sarebbero aumentati del 100%. A far data dal primo gennaio 2019 ad oggi nelle Provincie cambogiane gli ordigni hanno ucciso 11 civili e ferito altri 51 civili.
