US government to provide $425K for war-era cluster bomb clearance

The US government will provide an extra $425,000 to the Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) for it to clear the remnants of cluster bombs dropped on eastern Cambodia 40 years ago and carry out research.

CMAC director-general Heng Ratana said on Wednesday that he had signed an agreement with Rune Kristian Dale-Andresen, the director of Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) in Cambodia, on the research project worth $425,000.

The project is to be supported by the US Department of State.
