Phnom Penh fire

A May 25 fire that swept through a squatter community of wooden shacks along Sothearos Boulevard in Chamkarmon district of Phnom Penh left 2700 residents homeless. The cause of the fire remains under dispute. The British Embassy distributed $4340 in material aid to the area's former residents, who have been relocated to National Route 4 approximately 20 kilometers from Phnom Penh. The burnt-out area is to be re-developed as a public park.
