The Cambodian government has extended its sympathy to four countries affected by
the powerful tsunami that decimated seaside towns across Asia on December 26. Prime
Minister Hun Sen sent separate letters to the leaders of Thailand, India, Indonesia
and Sri Lanka to express sympathy for their losses. He also pledged donations of
$10,000 in aid to each country on behalf of the royal government. As the Post went
to print, the death toll from the tragedy stood at 116,000 and rising.
