FBI Trains Government Officials in Counterterrorism

The US Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday began training Cambodian Interior Ministry officials in counterterrorism, building on its newly opened office in Phnom Penh.

The week-long training will help Cambodia prevent terrorism and deal with it if it does occur, said, Lt. Gen. Sok Phal, who is in charge of security and intelligence for the Ministry of Interior.

"In case it eventually happens, we will have protection in place, and it is for our national defense interest," he said.

US Embassy Spokesman Jeff Daigle said the FBI and police were working together on other issues, such as forensics, drug and human trafficking and money laundering.
