Australian sailor dies in Sihanoukville

Two investigators from the Australian Defence Force have arrived in Cambodia to examine the death of an Australian sailor in Sihanoukville on Thursday. 

An ADF statement released on Friday said Leading Seaman Boatswain’s Mate Bradley William Livingston, 33, of HMAS Warramunga, had died while on leave ashore.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further until that investigation has been completed,” the statement said.

Ouk Seiha, head of the Ream Naval Base in Preah Sihanouk province, could not be reached for comment.

Provincial deputy police chief Chor Heng said that he was not aware of the case, while Defence Ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat could not be reached.
