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.

What was in the bags that the flood was carrying away?

As everything was floating away pretty fast, maybe it was just bags full of empty water bottles. The large number of large 20 lt water bottles might be a clue.

No mention of the dam collapse in Kirirom with the following flash flood through the village of Chambok this morning? There were some kids missing shortly after, who had gone to the forest with their cows, but everyone are found now.

I’m glad the headline clarified which Kampot it was (on a Cambodian forum) otherwise I’d be stumped.

Thanks CEOCambodiaNews. :good:
