Roberts sun tour boat goes up in Flames

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.

Any updates on this situation?

I'm sure The CSI team have gotten all the results back from the samples they had to send to the lab for testing.

The owner believes it was arson, the police say it was a gas explosion.

For a gas explosion you need a spark or a naked flame, so for the first time in recorded history, we can assume that the police may be wrong.

Apparently there was a meeting of the local tour operators to try to shut out the main island transport provider...three hours before the boats burned.
