A landmine explosion, which took place 200 meters from a village called Fass Chabai in the Foni Jarrol district, has claimed the lives of Jonkong Sanneh and his two children - Yahya and Sheikh Omar Sanneh.

Jonkong Sanneh, who is believed to be in his late 50s, and his two children who are residents of Foni Wassadou, went to fetch firewood in the early hours of Thursday morning around 8:30 a.m. when the incident happened.

Lamin Faye, a nurse at Kalagi Health Centre, confirmed to The Point newspaper that the bodies had already been transported to Bwiam Hospital for medical examination, before they would be returned to the village of Foni Wassadou for proper burial.
