Six dead as overloaded boat hits bad weather

An overloaded boat sunk in the midst of a storm on the Tonle Sap lake yesterday morning, leaving six dead and seven injured in Siem Reap province. The boat, which contained 13 people, was headed to a Buddhist ceremony at the Chet Dai pagoda in Kralanh district’s Sombour commune when it capsized, said Siem Reap provincial police chief Sort Nady. He said the number of passengers, not storms, caused the boat to capsize. Two of the dead were children. Flooding continues to plague the province.
