Small bomb explodes on bridge; no injuries

Provincial authorities are conducting an investigation after a small homemade bomb exploded at a bridge yesterday on National Road 4 near Pich Nil, a traditional place of Buddhist prayer half way between Phnom Penh and Preah Sihanouk province.

Tak Vanntha, Preah Sihanouk provincial police chief said that no one was injured in the explosion and that the small damage to the bridge was repaired immediately.

He said that a bomb was made of munitions placed in a plastic container able to hold about 30 litres of water, adding that Khmer Rouge soldiers used similar bombs.

Tep Mean, Phnom Sruoch district governor of Kampong Speu province, said he inspected the site afterward and said that there would be no delays for travellers, but added: “I cannot speculate who did it and why they did it.”
