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.

It's not just the city, it's Kandal Province too.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

How do they know the escapees spread the virus instead of contracting the virus in Phnom Penh? After all the escapees tested negative 72 hours pre-flight and upon arrival @ Pochentong.

Are we allowed to blame the Chinese yet? :evil:
No, never.

However, what are all these young Chinese doing in Cambodia at the moment. Has the online gaming fired up again, under the radar....? Or did it never stop ?
