The army has accused Cambodia of violating the international agreement to ban all landmines, after a blast that injured three military rangers inside Thai territory in Surin province on Tuesday.
The three wounded men were part of a patrol of 16 rangers near Ta Kwai Temple in Phanom Dong Rak district. The blast severed one man's right ankle, while two other soldiers sustained minor shrapnel injury.
"This incident shows that the Cambodia has violated the Ottawa Treaty and the agreement made to the Thai army that they will no longer use landmines. Investigators found four recently placed mines at the location," the source said.
