Cambodia refutes rumors of global floods on biblical scale

About 15,000 people are being urged to return home after they flocked to a mountain retreat in Cambodia’s remote west, near the famed temples of Angkor Wat, to escape a catastrophic global flood predicted by the leader of a local political party.
