ABSTRACT
Cambodia has set an important precedent, according to the U.S. ambassador to that country, Charles Ray, by blowing up a stockpile of 233 Soviet-era anti-aircraft missiles with the help of the U.S. explosives experts in order to prevent them falling into hands of terrorists. Cambodia is thought to be awash with other weaponry that has been left over from decades of civil war. The U.S. has become increasingly concerned about the use of the weapons since a failed attempt to bring down a passenger jet in Kenya in 2002.
