Cambodian Stampede Featured in North American Press

One day after the tragic stampede at the Water Festival in Cambodia that killed at least 351 people, a number of major newspapers across the United States and Canada featured the Cambodian story on their front pages. The collection of front pages at Washington's Newseum, an interactive museum of news and journalism just a few blocks from the US Capitol, shows the prominence of the stampede news in nation-wide and state-wide newspapers in the United States and Canada. The news attracted passers-by well into the late evening. (By Soeung Sophat, VOA Khmer)
