Floods: the Death Toll in Cambodia Rises to 10

Thousands of people have been displaced due to the rainfalls.

At least 10 people have died in flash floods since Oct. 1 as heavy rains have been falling over the country, a Cambodian official said on Oct. 11.

“At least 10 people have died in flood-hit provinces across Cambodia,” said Khun Sokha, a spokesperson for the National Committee for Disaster Management, in a phone interview.

Sokha said that he could not at this point give more details on the victims or say in which provinces they had lost their lives as he still was gathering information from the local authorities. However, based on the initial information he had received, three of the victims were in Banteay Meanchey Province, he said.
