Migrant workers home from Malaysia at last

More than 100 Cambodian migrant workers returned home on June 16 after being stranded in Malaysia for months amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Malaysian Airlines flight MH 762 landed on the evening of June 16 at Phnom Penh International Airport carrying 115 migrant workers who had been stuck abroad since April, most without work and unable to afford rent and food.

Prime Minister Hun Sen announced on April 7 that the government had decided to ban travel from Malaysia after dozens of cases of Covid-19 were discovered in Cambodia among a group of locals who had traveled to attend a large Islamic festival in Kuala Lumpur in March.
