Ven Rathavong / Khmer Times Share:

The United Nations will grant about $70,000 in compensation to the families of four Cambodian peacekeepers who were killed in the Central African Republic while on a UN peacekeeping mission when their unit was attacked on Monday. 
Talking to reporters after paying his respects to the dead peacekeepers on Friday, General Sem Sovanny, the director-general of the Cambodian National Center for Peacekeeping Forces, said that so far, the amount of compensation being granted is about $70,000.  
He added that Cambodia had received money from the UN and was preparing to grant it to the families of the peacekeepers who died. 
“They [the families of the dead peacekeepers] have already been contacted in order to receive the money. It could take place at the Foreign Affairs Ministry under the leadership of Prak Sokhonn, the Foreign Affairs Minister,” Gen Sovanny said, adding that Mr Sokhonn would find a suitable schedule for the handover ceremony. 
He added that the bodies of the four peacekeepers would arrive in Cambodia during the next two weeks.
