Grenade kills man near Angkor Wat

A man flung a hand grenade into a crowd of people celebrating the end of the Khmer New Year holiday on April 16, killing one man and injuring 25 others. The attack, which killed the 25-year-old instantly, took place Wednesday evening in Siem Reap province, near the Angkor Wat temples, said policeman Ou Em, provincial bureau chief of serious crime. “While many people were dancing, an attacker threw a grenade into the crowd, killing a man and injuring 25 others,” Ou Em said by telephone. Police are questioning a suspect over the attack, he said, but the motive was still unclear. (AFP)
