Survivor: war ends but suffering remains

Forty-six-year-old Phon Chet, who lost his left leg to cluster bombs 14 years ago, sits with other impaired people at a rehabilitation center in Kampong Cham province during a media tour on Thursday. Due to unexploded ordnance left over from the civil war in the 1970s, his wife and six children lost the chance to go to school. The cluster bomb that hit Mr. Chet also struck his wife, who lost her vision. Despite having an artificial leg, he is not considered “disabled” since he is still able to support his family. …cluster bombs
