Shooting in Phnom Penh near Phsar PC

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.

Scary.
Sure looks like it at first glance.

So, why?

Working at the embassy one would assume there would be stringent character tests performed. I doubt then (my opinion) that this guy was up to no good.

Perhaps it was his reluctance to corruption.

Or maybe he was into something he shouldn't have been.

I'm putting a side bet on Digg3r's cards, that sounds reasonable to me.

People here get easily offended and you can get killed for something trivial, ie stepping on some idiot's foot by mistake at a wedding.

They will wait for years sometimes to repay a perceived slight that the victim may not even be aware of.

Very little comedy when it is close to home, and it always is for the family.

SC, Kris' quip was cross forum- a little obscure but also a cogent comment.

Well said Kris.

I can't bear all the speculation and 2nd guessing at tragedy, especially all the negative assumptions that fly from anonymous posters.

It is like they are all some Kojac wannabees.

No comfort for the families of victims to see the object of tragedy made into a figure of fun for the idle amusement of contemptible intellects.

sorry- it is a particularly sore point with me - and something i detest when i see it honed to an art elsewhere.
my comments not aimed at anyone's postings here.

The restraint here on the subject of death and tragedy is both admirable and honorable.
It reflects the character of the posters here.
