DDAS, 1997, Afghanistan, tripwire, POMZ, AP
The investigators determined that Victim No.1 was scratching a mark to show the end of the breaching land outside the area actually cleared (he should have left a 50cm safety margin the other way) when his bayonet pulled the tripwire attached to the mine. The mine was three metres away from the deminer when it was initiated. They thought that Victim No 2 did not maintain the proper safety distance and so was hit by some fragments.
