Police officers clear rubble from the site of a collapsed building on Street 5, near Psar Chas (Old Market) in Phnom Penh March 23, two days after a huge explosion brought the structure down.

The blast was believed to have been caused when a pressure cooker used to make noodles blew up. In total, nine people lost their lives in the blast and subsequent collapse, including the couple who owned the shop. The seven others killed were all staff members.

One man remains missing, and 17 people who were injured are being treated at Calmette Hospital.
