Michael Teich, 51 yo German, found dead in hostel, St 172 PP.

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.

It is high time for PP numbers to get going a bit.
Why is it that every year SHV gets a serious head start ?

"Why come to Cambodia to kill yourself ?

Interesting question. A few years back there was an American who promoted euthanasia out of Kampot. I couldn't get the Daily article since I don't subscribe but I found this with plenty of links.

He's beginning to look like a businessman ahead of his time.

"^^ You don't need to subscribe to get the Daily articles."

The best my phone can raise is short blurbs, but not the whole article. I signed up but my password and email are both rejected. Well duck 'em I can take a joke. I live in the Kingdom of Wonder after all.

^^ Don't ask me how to do this on your phone, but you just need to clear the CambodiaDaily cookies, or just clear your browsing history might also work.

When I just get the first paragraph of an article and the message saying to Subscribe to read more, I just clear the CD cookies. After that, I get the whole article.
