Controversy pictures over Angkor Sangkrant

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.

I think it's the colors. Looks pretty Chinese to my untrained eyes too.

Eight men who were arrested last week for their alleged involvement in the arson of a decorative gateway built for the Angkor Sankranta New Year festival in Siem Reap City were charged Friday and sent to the provincial prison, officials said Sunday.

After the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia (UYFC)— a youth group headed by Prime Minister HE’s son Hun Many—built the gate, Cambodian Facebook users complained that its style had too much Vietnamese and Chinese influence. In the early hours of Tuesday, it was set on fire.
