Wives of Cambodian deminers working in Sudan have told local media that their husbands
are not receiving their salaries from the government. It has been two months since
some 100 Cambodian demining troops were last paid, according to reports. Salaries
are usually received by the soldiers' wives or families in Cambodia, but they said
that this has not been happening. Defense Minister Tea Banh denied the claims and
said the ministry was doing a "proper job," and paying them promptly.
