A Peruvian driver was killed when his car hit a landmine in northern Chile.

The Chilean army said the car - a taxi with a Peruvian number plate - crossed the border illegally on Friday night.

It inadvertently entered a minefield and set off an anti-tank device, which destroyed the vehicle.

Chile planted thousands of mines along its border in the 1970s during a period of tension with Peru.
