PHNOM PENH - US Embassy security in Phnom Penh has been enhanced since last week’s attack on a US consulate in Libya.

The attack, blamed in part on an anti-Muslim video circulating on the Internet, killed the US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.

Cambodia is home to some 500,000 Muslims, but they are not considered violent or anti-American.

The security increase at the embassy came as an order from the US president and the US State Department as a precaution, embassy spokesman Sean McIntosh told reporters. US citizens in Cambodia have been warned to stay alert, he said.

Cambodia is thought to produce the best wild honey in Southeast Asia, mainly due to its climate and topography. Most of it is harvested informally and sold cheaply at local village markets. Now, one company is helping some of the country's poorest people by employing them to hunt for honey, then selling it commercially. (AP, Koh Kong)
