In 1993, UNTAC collected statistics from the 4 sides in the conflict; a total of 320,443 light weapons and 80,729,175 items of ammunition were reported.
It is thought that the real numbers were considerably higher than these reports. Col. David Mead, former Australian Defense Attaché in Cambodia, has estimated that there are at present at least 500,000 light weapons in Cambodia, of which about half are with the armed forces and half are with civilians.
