In Brief: Internet cafe for journalists opens

The Club of Cambodian Journalists (CCJ) has opened a free internet cafe for local journalists to research information. Pen Samitthy, president of CCJ, told the Post Sunday the club welcomed all local journalists and students studying journalism to use the cafe's resources. "Now we have six computers with good internet connections as well as a printer, but this will not be enough," he said. "We will add nine computers with internet soon." The Free Internet Cafe Program is being supported by the EU Committee to Cambodia for one year, Pen Samitthy said.
