Deutsche Press Agentur (DPA) news office in Phnom Penh will close at the end of May.

Bureau chief Patrick Falby said the Berlin headquarters is reducing worldwide costs

and offices in some other countries will close as well. DPA has had a reporter in

Phnom Penh since 1994.

Meanwhile the Reuters bureau chief Ed Cropley will leave Cambodia to be based in

Bangkok from early June because there is not enough news in the country to justify

a large staff. The office will remain open with three Khmer staff, a television cameraman,

photographer and reporter, with Cropley making regular visits.
