Contaminated water killing Kratie villagers

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.

Not even an animal would drink water from that stream.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Unlikely that everyone affected had been drinking rice wine, or am I missing a subtlety in your comment?

I really don't know v, but when there are mass deaths in rural areas it's often related to ricewine.
It may very well turn out to be from pesticide run-off into the stream, but with the volume of water running in the stream it would require quite a significant quantity of pesticide.
As someone asked earlier, "what's upstream"? Gold mines? I don't know.

Agreed, but i don’t know many kids who drink ricewine, i think you’re on the right track!

Personally I find it hard to believe people were ill because of contaminated water. The rains kicked in about 11 days ago (more than a week before the first illnesses appeared), so I expect all houses to have fresh clean rainwater in their concrete jars....... No need to carry water from the stream for use at home.

My bet is rice-wine with ethanol and a cover up by the authorities.
