$US2mil worth of illicit drugs burns on anti-drug day.

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.

PHNOM PENH, June 26 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia burned down 64 kg of illicit drugs with a street value of 2 million U.S. dollars on Tuesday, which marked the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, said an anti-drug chief.

"Most of the illicit drugs were crystal methamphetamine, methamphetamine pills, heroin, and cocaine, as well as marijuana," Deputy Prime Minister Ke Kim Yan, who is also chairman of the National Authority for Combating Drugs, told reporters after the burning ceremony.

He said the drugs were confiscated from criminals in late 2017 and early 2018.

According to Ke Kim Yan, in the first five months of 2018, the authorities had arrested 5,702 drug suspects in 2,870 cases and seized 93.2 kg of illicit drugs.

He added that the Southeast Asian country had found 9,364 drug addicts during the January-May period this year, and 7,056, or 75 percent of them had received drug quit treatment.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Does that explain the strong smell of dope in the air around Sothearos/Koh Pich?
