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.

Mondolkiri province, Cambodia Breaking News: A wildlife trafficker was stopped and arrested while transporting wild monkeys along National Road 76 this morning in Keo Seima district, Mondulkiri.
Image
The suspect, 34-year-old Huyhu, was driving a car with the number 2R-8247. Thirteen monkeys were being transported in sacks in the trunk of the vehicle.
Image
Wildlife official Brahma Vibol Ratanak says that the monkey smuggler is a well known wildlife trafficker that they had been attempting to capture for a long time. The suspect will remain in detention until he appears in court.

Happy ending for these thirteen monkeys who have been released into a protected forest area.
