School Teacher dies in gas explosion at Don Bosco Technical School in Sihanoukville, 7 Injured

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.

Hard to understand exactly how one or even two gas bottles can explode at normal temperatures. Gas, whether it be LPG or Acetylene needs oxygen to burn or explode. If those bottles of gas ,,, had gas in them under pressure , then the flame could not get inside the bottle to explode.
A more likely theory would be the gas leaked out , and being heavier than air gathered at ground level and was eventually ignited by something.
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.

They welded two gas bottles together?
That's a fucking smart move for a start.
