Workers returned

About 300 legal Cambodian labourers in Thailand were sent back to the Kingdom yesterday via the Poipet border after the factories in which they worked were closed due to heavy flooding, Banteay Meanchey provincial Governor Ung Oeun said. “The number of Khmer labourers sent back from Thailand could increase if the flooding situation in Thailand does not recede,” he said. The Bangkok Post reported yesterday that more 900 factories, many of them auto-part manufacturers, had been shut down across the country due to flooding.
