Body found in river

The body of a 31-year-old man, who is thought to have committed suicide after contracting HIV/AIDS, was dragged onto Phnom Penh’s busy Sisowath Quay yesterday morning at about 9am. Acting chief of Psar Kandal Commune 1 police, Nou Touch, said the man had jumped into the river earlier that day. “He got HIV/AIDS many years ago. He could not cure it so he decided to kill himself by jumping into the river that morning,” he said. The body, which attracted a large crowd of passers-by and onlookers, has now been returned to the man’s family in order for a funeral to be held.
