Memory of deadly building collapse lingers for Sihanoukville workers

Workers gathered this week to mark the one year anniversary of a building collapse in Preah Sihanouk province that killed 28, and spoke of their fears of returning to construction work as the provincial court is set to begin hearings on June 25 to try four men for manslaughter in the case.
