Lightning kills three

Three people died and one was seriously injured after they were struck by lightning in two separate incidents on Sunday, bringing this year’s death toll up to 50. An 18-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman died and a 14-year-old girl was injured in Pursat province’s Krakor district after a cottage they took shelter in was hit, district deputy police chief Eam Run said yesterday. Ratanak Mondol district police officials in Battambang province who declined to be named said that a 13-year-old boy was struck as he walked through a ricefield.
