Army out of rice

The company that supplies the Cambodian army with rice is failing to provide a sufficient

supply to military bases throughout the country, local media reported. According

to RCAF officials, KMTL Co Ltd, which won the 2007 bidding for the contract, met

its target in the first three months of the year but has supplied only two percent,

or 110 tons, out of over 7,000 tons stipulated in the contract for the second trimester.

Local media reported that soldiers in remote regions may be without rice altogether.

Defense officials said the company must meet 100 percent of its contracted supply

by the end of April.
