Chances of more survivors 'unlikely'.

Nine Thai nationals caught in the Cambodian hotel-casino blaze are still missing, Sa Kaeo authorities said on Monday.

The bodies of 19 Thai nationals who were killed by the blaze at the Grand Diamond City hotel-casino complex last week have been brought back to Thailand, said Thawatchai Boonsang, Aranyaprathet district’s senior deputy district chief and acting director of the Thai victims’ rescue operations centre.

Meanwhile, the bodies of 14 other Thai victims are still in Cambodia. Of them, five were at Wat Trat in Poipet, six at the Poipet Hospital, and three at the Sisophon Hospital in Banteay Meanchey province.
