Children find two bodies along river

Foul play

The bodies of two unidentified men, believed to have been murdered, washed up on a riverbank in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district yesterday morning, police said.

The men – who police suspect may be Chinese nationals – were found by a group of children who were herding cows in the district’s Prek Tasek commune, said commune police chief Khuon Chheang.

“The bodies were covered with blood on the head and face,” Chheang added.

Because the bodies had not yet decomposed, he estimates that the men might have been killed in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

“According to our preliminary conclusion, this is a case of murder. Police are now working and investigating this case,” Chheang said.

“According to an examination of the bodies, they were strongly hit by hard items and got very serious injuries on their heads, necks and faces,” said Mom Sitha, chief of the capital’s Foreign Police Office.
