PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - About 200 people including many landmine victims held a candle-lit march in Phnom Penh on Friday to celebrate the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Former Cambodian guerrilla Tun Channareth, who lost his legs to a mine in 1982, was due to receive the prize in Oslo on behalf of the campaign later on Friday. Another former soldier, Ny Chanta, told the Phnom Penh gathering that Cambodia, one of the world's most heavily mined countries, should be proud that one of its citizens was accepting the prize. "Today, Cambodia can be proud that Tun Channareth from Siem Reap province receives the Nobel Peace Prize," the double amputee said. The marchers, led by four Buddhist monks, included many foreign aid workers as well as Cambodian mine victims in wheel chairs and walking with sticks. There are between four and six million mines in Cambodia, the legacy of decades of conflict. The country has the world's highest rate of amputees due to the mines. Cambodia signed an international treaty in Ottawa last week aimed at banning anti-personnel mines.
