In Brief: Korean developer blamed for floods

Further reports of unprecedented flooding in the expatriate stronghold of Sala Kamroeuk commune suggest that a Korean building company was responsible. A resident, on condition of anonymity, told the Post he became suspicious when flooding persisted after five days of no rain. He phoned a government "friend in Phnom Penh," and was told the flooding was caused when a canal was closed to allow for activities by an "unnamed Korean building company," with water redirected into Sala Kamroeuk. The tip from Phnom Penh was that the canal would be reopened the following day. This happened and the flood waters immediately subsided.
