A creepy 'killer clown' has died after being chased by furious locals before reportedly stepping on a landmine.

The man trod on the deadly trap after scaring residents in Samraong in northwestern Cambodia.

Locals then chased the clown, which they thought was an 'evil spirit', into a nearby jungle and later heard a blast and realised the prankster had stepped on a mine.

Police were called but the man could not be identified as a result of his injuries.

He is believed to be a 25-year-old student who had returned from the US to visit relatives in the south-east Asian country.



As reported by the Times of Cambodia, a police captain said: "A group of men came out of their houses and gave chase to the man wearing the mask.

"They didn't want to hurt him, but they wanted to find out who it was and make him apologise to the people he'd scared."

But according to the police, they stopped chasing him when they got to the nearby jungle and shouted warnings about the dangers in the area.

And the captain added: "But he just kept running, and moments later their worst fears were realised when an explosion rang out."

Landmines are a huge problem in Cambodia as a result of three decades of war. The country has 40,000 amputees as a result - one of the highest rates in the world.

The killer clown craze was started in the US by pranksters and quickly spread across the world.
