Elephants on parade

PUTANG village, an ethnic minority community in Mondulkiri province, plans to hold a traditional elephant parade tomorrow in order to attract more tourists to visit the area. Py Ngouk, the chief of Romnea commune, said the parades were traditionally held annually to ask the spirits for health and happiness, but would this year be used to promote tourism. Putang villagers will decorate 12 of their 20 elephants for the event, he said.
