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.
A number of actions going on to clean up Sihanoukville... the prediction was that it would be big words and little action... but a lot going on. Rather than make an individual thread for each news story, I'm just going to put them all here as they come in.
Start if off with this one...
Sihanoukville night police crackdown on subversive groups of armed bandits. Yesterday 4 people were arrested.
N2O was one of the only nice things about the beach. (Police Chief must not get a kickback from it.) No hangover, no drunken sillyness, no barfing after over indulging. Why pick on that? From the pictures it looks like maybe 5% of the police department in Snooky may be doing something while the other 95% are still either setting on their butts/taking bribes or once in a while stopping a moto without a helmet, but letting idiots drive on the wrong side of the road, hog the center lane of traffic at 5k per hour, drive without lights(sorry forgot traffic cops don't come out at night or in the rain), drive down the white line (what's with that?) and stopping just about every driver with white skin while turning a blind eye to tons of Cambodians that offend right in front of them.
I wonder what lucky cop got the clone 1911. Kind of bright for my tastes, but better than the puny 9mm they now carry.
