Second US-funded facility demolished in Cambodia

Cambodia has drawn the ire of the United States after it demolished a second US-built facility at its Ream Naval Base.

The demolition comes barely a month after it demolished the US-funded Tactical Headquarters of the National Committee for Maritime Security (NCMS) in September.

Cambodian Defence Minister General Tea Banh defended the move, saying the boat maintenance facility was on Cambodian sovereign territory and described the issue as a trivial matter that was being exaggerated.
