Cambodia nabs five for planting bomb outside Naga casino

Concerns raised by a leader who believes the hand grenade was planted to scare striking workers.

Four Chinese and one Cambodian were arrested after a hand grenade exploded outside the NagaWorld casino where hundreds of striking workers have held persistent demonstrations for more than a year.

No one was hurt in the explosion, which sources close to the government and local media said was caused by a hand grenade that had been hidden in a cake and wired to a detonator and then placed on the roadside in front of the casino on Dec 15.

It was moved to safer ground on a median strip by a street cleaner who notified authorities. A zone was enforced and the grenade detonated about two hours later.
