Plane Crash: Rescue Efforts Continue

Expat Advisory

Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday he was traveling personally to where a PMT Air passenger flight had disappeared and was believed to have crashed as weather conditions worsened and hopes of finding survivors dwindled.

Hundreds of military were scouring the jungle about 40 kilometers north of Kampot town Tuesday, so far unsuccessfully, for traces of the wreckage in a search personally led by Cambodian army commander-in-chief Ke Kim Yan and National Disaster Management Committee deputy president Nhim Vanda.

Kampot lies about 150 kilometers south-west of the capital.

The Man Who Got Duch, sort of...(Pt 1)

With the appeal of Tuol Sleng chief Comrade Duch against his pre-trial detention the ECCC is underway, which meant Phnom Penh was again home, very temporarily, to some of the world's media.

Phnom Penh does not afford expats the fantastical royal treatment one might secretly dream of after too many viewings of the King and I at age 6. It's impossible to sit down at the royal palace for a 5 course meal - or at least I've never been invited. But Le Royal at Raffles Hotel does justice to its name. If your aim is princess-for-a-day, it's well worth the pricey royal treatment.
