CNRP bodyguards hurt in P Sihanouk accident

Seven of Cambodian National Rescue Party leader Sam Rainsy’s bodyguards were injured yesterday after their car overturned while travelling along National Road 4 in Preah Sihanouk province’s Kampong Sela district.

District police chief Keo Phirun suggested nobody was to blame. “The car overturned by itself and all of the injured bodyguards were sent for treatment immediately,” he said yesterday. According to Rainsy’s head bodyguard, Long Ry, the incident occurred when the car carrying the men attempted to overtake another vehicle and hit a ditch.

“Two of the bodyguards broke their hands and five others are slightly injured,” Ry said. On June 11, CNRP official Meach Sovannara was involved in a traffic accident in Pursat province. He is currently being treated in Bangkok.
