Suicide at wat: Immolation by woman at city pagoda

Suicide at wat
A 55-year-old woman from Pursat province died Sunday night after dousing herself in kerosene and setting herself on fire at Wat Botum, a monk at the pagoda said. “We don’t know the real reason why she burned herself, as she arrived alone yesterday at around 6:30pm with some belongings and placed them in front of the pagoda,” Chum Son said. “When I went to meet her and asked where she came from and why she came here, she didn’t say anything to me.” Preak Kha, the Chaktomuk commune police chief, said police were investigating.
