Two journalists in Kratie province have filed a police complaint in Tbong Khmum province accusing unknown assailants of beating them while on a reporting trip to cover forestry crimes.
Ren Samnang, 29, and Muok Saren, 40, are journalists based in Kratie province and work for “Phnek Mnoas” and “Chakra Phup” news outlets, respectively. They said they routinely travel to the nearby province of Tbong Khmum and Kampong Cham to report on illegal timber transport routes.
The reporters said they were sleeping in their car in Tbong Khmum’s Memot district at approximately midnight on September 28 when five to six men attacked them with hammers, axes, and sticks, with Ren Samnang saying the men seemed to come there with the intent to kill.
