Cambodians Are Increasingly Being Executed For Sorcery

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Never heard of anyone being executed or punished, and this sort of practice is so rare nowadays; at best you might hear stories being passed from one to another. It always start with there is an old man in my village...or when I was a kid...etc. In term of Dawkins, I think he is a dick; I watched his documentary many years ago where he traveled around mocking religious people trying to prove his point.
