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.

Breaking News: CEO News has received information from the Child Protection Unit (CPU) that the CPU homicide team is heading to Sihanoukville tonight with a forensic pathologist to assist the Cambodian National Police in their investigation into the death of Amelia Bambridge.
Excellent news. Nothing gained by speculating what an official autopsy will find, but I too feel there's been some foul play. Amelia is said to be conscientious and careful, one clue being her bag that showed how well prepared she tended to be. I am more confident of a thorough investigation now that the CPU is involved.
A common scenario is for people to dive into shallow water, no matter how careful one can be none of us are perfect, we can only just do our best to lesson the odds. When i think back on how many times I could of been a statistic......well I'm sure we can all relate to that.
RIP young lady, you seem like a beautiful soul.

AFAIK the CPU team have at least one Australian forensic pathologist, and they will have done a professional examination, so it will be interesting to see their results. :thumb:

Latest report today says that Amelia is still missing, and foreign residents are preparing dive teams to check the coastal areas close to the scene tomorrow.

Good luck to all and let's hope that Amelia will be found safe.
This is seriously bad news. I have never had a problem of any kind here but I’m not an 18 year old white girl. Hope she is found fit and well

British backpacker Amelia Bambridge, who went missing in Cambodia, died from accidental drowning, a post-mortem examination has concluded.

The body of the 21-year-old was found about 30 miles from the island of Koh Rong, where she was last seen at a beach party eight days earlier.

Ms Bambridge, from Worthing, West Sussex, was reported missing when she failed to check out of her hostel.

Officials said her death was "not related with any other crime at all".

Her body was taken to Sihanoukville on the mainland after it was recovered on Thursday.

The post-mortem results were confirmed by Sihanoukville Information Department and local police.

Officials said her body had been released to the family who would be able to return her to the UK immediately.
