And what will it cost?

Pipeline laid, but water?

 People have raised the issue of polluted water year after year but to no avail. Most people living around the factory depend on groundwater. Arif Nagar, set up in 1990, gets the municipal water on alternate days. It is hardly enough for drinking, so people ...

Dumps wide open

 DUMPS WIDE OPEN Right behind the factory is a solar evaporation pond that was used to dump the hazardous waste when the plant was operational. Its plastic lining is torn and the waste has been piled on the sides. In 2007, the state studied people’s health ...

Darfur pays for its water (part 3)

 As the desert is expanding, where are the Darfurians going and where will they go in future? Europe. They are moving to Italy through Libya. The Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi now has this deal with Gaddafi which allows Libyan soldiers to hunt ...

History of Sihanouk Ville

Khun Khmer Boxing: Yesterday & Today

Thommanon

Elephant Terrace

Angkor Thom

Angkor Thom, one of the largest of all Khmer cities, was founded by Jayavarman VII and probably remained the capital until the 17th century. For most visitors, the first sight of this monumental construction is the magnificent S Gate, with its towers with ...

Luang Phrabang in the nineteenth century

Mondulkiri Province

A world apart from lowland Cambodia, Mondulkiri Province is the original Wild East of the country. Climatically and culturally, it’s also another world, which comes as a relief after the heat of the plains. Home to the hardy Bunong (Pnong) people and their ...
