Police Save 5 After River Bank Collapse


Police late Tuesday rescued five people from the banks of the Tonle Sap, 6 kilometers north of Phnom Penh, after a riverbank collapsed.

Mud along the shore fell into the river, taking with it 39 small wooden homes, and officials originally worried fatalities.

No one ultimately died in the collapse, but police fished five villagers out of the river.
