PHNOM PENH, 12 December 2012 (The Cambodia Herald) -Nineteen families from Svay Pak commune in Russey Keo district protested for a second day Wednesday after their homes fell into the Tonle Sap River.
Representatives So Lot and Horn Sopheany said landslides were being triggered by sand dredging.
Twenty-four houses along the river have been affected, they said. Although five have already left, the other 19 refuse to accept offers of between $500 and $800.
Ho Samorn, the Svay Pak commune chief, said they were demanding between $3,000 and $5,000 in compensation.
