Cambodia’s mine dog heroes honoured

Phnom Penh – On Friday, the Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) will celebrate the heroism of mine detection dogs that help speed up the painstaking task and ease the difficulties faced by demining agents.

CMAC director-general Heng Ratana told The Post on Thursday that the organisation will showcase the dogs’ capabilities and contribution to society and their cooperation with deminers at CMAC’s head office in Phnom Penh.

He said mine detection dogs helped hasten CMAC’s work and reduce the difficulties faced by the human task force in searching for mines. CMAC mine agents use metal detection devices, Ratana said, which is a slow process and has many drawbacks.
