A 15-year-old girl was raped by three youths and then murdered on Sunday night in Meanchey district’s Chak Angre Kroam commune, district police said yesterday.
 
Meanchey district officer Kong Vannak said the 15-year-old girl was a high school student and that she had been raped by three young men before she was killed. After breaking her neck, the rapists threw her naked body into the Tonle Bassac River, he said.
 
The girl and her mother had been visiting her uncle in Rokar village to celebrate Chinese New Year, Mr. Vannak said, adding that a group of three young men had invited her to join them in a field on the banks of the river.
 
 Her naked body was found floating near the banks of the river early the next day.
 
“After the gang rape, they broke her neck, tossed her corpse in the river and ran away,” Mr. Vannak said. He said police had yet to identify the suspects but were working hard on the case. An examination of the girl’s body found serious damage to her vagina due to repeated rapes, the officer said.
