Tree collapses and kills trio in Kampong Thom

Three women died and two others were injured yesterday in Kampong Thom province’s Sandan district when a tree they had sought shelter under during a storm fell on them, said officials.

Sim Vanna, Sandan district governor, said the storm hit at about 5pm and lasted for five minutes.

The bodies had been brought for funeral proceedings and the injured had been given assistance, he added.

Meanwhile, seven families received aid from the Cambodian Red Cross in Svay Rieng province yesterday after their houses were damaged in a storm last week.

You Bunny, deputy governor of Svay Rieng town, said the emergency relief comprised 25 kilograms of rice, water tanks and cans of fish.
