The death toll from a capsized boat off the coast of Cambodia rose to three Chinese nationals on Saturday, with a further nine rescued in Vietnamese waters and eight still missing, Cambodian authorities said.
The vessel with 41 Chinese people on board got into difficulties near the Cambodian casino hub of Sihanoukville on Thursday. It was carrying migrants from China who had been promised work.
Kheang Phearom, a spokesman for Cambodia’s Preah Sihanouk provincial administration, said rescue teams recovered two more bodies on Saturday, bringing the death toll to three.
