At Least 3 People Injured in Grenade Attack Near Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in BKK3, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

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.

This was just posted on CEO's Facebook page:

That spoon is from an M 26 frag grenade, at least 30+ years old... and still functional.

The lever shown in the pics looks more like an m61 or similar which I have thrown quite a few, doesn't look like anything i,ve seen on Russian grenades though. Happy to be corrected if you can tell me which one.

Haha. You guys make me laugh. Nothing quite like sitting around of an evening discussing the finer points of grenade-throwing.

:popcorn: Ok, while I'm here, I'll ask the experts : is there some significance if the grenade is Russian rather than Chinese ?

LoL, so we're 100% certain it's Russian and 100% certain it's Chinese.

I'm not good with math, but I'm glad to see we're getting to the bottom of this.

From the Khmer Times:

The car belonged to an official at the Ministry of Agriculture who was returning from the gym about 7:40pm when the explosion happened. The grenade damaged three other vehicles as well.

An undercover policeman told Khmer Times that the two men – a Vietnamese national and 35-year-old Indian national Darmahendra Singh Kshetrinayun – as well as a Cambodian woman were sent for treatment at Calmette Hospital and the Khmer-Soviet Hospital after the attack.

I believe they had the word order of the Indian victim incorrectly in the Khmer Times.

The victim appears to be Kshetrimayum Dharmendra Singh, possibly an English teacher at American Intercon Institute or American Intercon School in Phnom Penh.

He if also listed here:

http://mjqeducation.edu.kh/about-us/sen ... etrimayum/

Dharmendra Singh Kshetrimayum, BA, TEFL, Diploma in Aviation, Hospitality & Travel Management; the Executive Secretary to the President of Menly J. Quach Holdings and a Head Teacher at the Keo Lundi ESL Department.

I joined Menly J. Quach Education and started as an ESL teacher at the Keo Lundi ESL Department in November, 2011. I taught until late-2013 and presented at the CAMTesol, 2013 on the topic, “Learning by Teaching”.


He doesn't seem to be someone who would be the target of a grenade attack, but who knows.

Incredibly lucky those motorbikes were clear.

It almost looks as if one of the riders dropped it - possibly even by mistake? It doesn't roll/come 'from' any direction, it's just there, indicating it wasn't hurled.

It would take some skill to calculate the precise moment to release if riding ahead or coming from the opposite direction to actually hit that car. If it was targeted, why drop it to be run over with a 4-8 second fuse? Much simpler to toss it under the car at a red light or something.
