PHNOM PENH - Chinese technicians are investigating a hydrodam accident in Pursat province that injured four workers and has left three still missing.

The $255 million Atay River Dam, in Veal Veng district, is under construction by the China Datang Corporation. On Saturday, structures inside the dam burst, flooding the area, emptying the reservoir and delaying power generation that was supposed to begin next year.

“As far as I know, the investigation is in progress,” Chinese Embassy spokesman Yang Tian Yue told VOA Khmer on Thursday.

There has been no conclusion on what caused the accident, and authorities say they are not ready to declare the missing workers dead.

And although local officials in the province say the company has begun discussions with family members for compensation, neither Yang nor Pursat Governor Khoy Sokha could confirm this.

31 August 2015
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on Monday denied a refugee deal with Cambodia had collapsed after Cambodian officials said Cambodian did not intend to accept any more refugees from a South Pacific detention centre under an agreement. Australia and Cambodia agreed last September that some refugees from Nauru would be resettled in Cambodia in exchange for Australian aid, but only four have arrived since then. Cambodian Interior Ministry spokesman General Khieu Sopheak told Reuters that they "have no plans to receive more refugees from Nauru." Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop denied the deal had collapsed. Pin Sisovann, VOA Khmer.
