Dutch translation needed

What will be the correct English translation of "boobytrap in weiland (mijn)" ?

From the context, it seems to me a civilian was killed by a mine near the village of Baarle-Nassau, during the battle for its liberation.

Re: Dutch translation needed

Hi again Laurent,

The Dutch phrase "boobytrap in weiland (mijn)" would be "Boobytrap in meadow (mine)".
Although specified as "boobytrap" I just think a civilian just stepped on a typical landmine, which happened frequently also after the end of hostilities.

Regards,
Hans Nauta
