A bomb exploded outside the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh on the evening of
April 13, injuring a policeman. No one has claimed responsibility for the homemade
TNT device, but media reports attributed it to groups as disparate as street children
to the Cambodian Freedom Fighters, who have denied responsibility. Monseaksakar Khmer
took the prize for fanciful speculation describing the incident as "a Vietnamese
trick to create turmoil on Khmer New Year day". An April 16 grenade explosion
in a Kampot gambling den killed two and injured 26.
