Rocket blast injures soldiers near Cambodia PM's home

PHNOM PEHN (Reuters) - Rockets exploded on Sunday at a Cambodian military base near the prime minister's residence, state-run television said, and military officials said the incident was an accident.

Military and police officials said the explosion was caused by a fire started accidentally by a mechanic working on a truck at the base on the southern outskirts of the capital, Phnom Penh.

"A truck driver and his assistant were wounded, one of them seriously," TVK television said in a statement issued by the office of Prime Minister Hun Sen.
At least nine trucks were damaged in the fire.

"A number of rockets were accidentally fired from the truck," a military security guard told Reuters.
