Voice of America chief makes Cambodia visit

Voice of America director David Ensor lit incense, prayed with monks and paid his respect to Khmer Rouge victims at Sngoun Pech pagoda just outside of Phnom Penh as part of an official trip to Cambodia.

“I’ve been director now for about 10 months and I felt it was a good time for me to come and learn first-hand more about Cambodia, and more about VOA’s efforts here, and how we can improve them,” he said.
