Mondulkiri officials uncover illegal wood

MONDULKIRI forestry officials have discovered a stash of lumber cut from protected wood, but a two-day operation failed to yield any arrests, the office’s chief of cantonment said yesterday. About 120 large pieces of thnong, a hardwood often used for making furniture, were found this weekend in Sok San commune of Koh Nhek district, Song Kheang said. Officials waited two days for the loggers to return, but to no avail, he said, adding that the wood is being held at the district office.
