Singapore says second soldier was accidentally shot in Thailand

Singapore's Defence Ministry said Wednesday that two of its soldiers, not just one, were accidentally shot by a villager while they were taking part in a night training exercise in March in Thailand.

A ministry spokeswoman confirmed a report by The Straits Times newspaper, saying that, apart from a sergeant, 19-year-old Private J Pritheery Raj had also been wounded when a villager out hunting inadvertently opened fire on them.

Raj still had shotgun pellets lodged in his cheekbones and his right shoulder and was on medical leave, the report said.
