Timber transporter killed in accident

A 37-year-old timber smuggler died early on Sunday in Mondulkiri province’s Keo Seima district after an accident caused the contraband wood he was hauling home on his motorbike to crush his neck.

“He had stolen two pieces of wood from other people, and he died at about 5am on Saturday,” [police chief] Chamroeun said. “When his motorbike slipped, the wood flew up into his neck and caused him to die.”

A local journalist, who asked not to be named, said that Sokhorn was likely chased by military police, which the reporter said had been stationed along the road to extort money from road users.

However, provincial military police chief Sak Saraing denied any of his officers were stationed on the route.
