BREAKING NEWS: Six-Storey Under-Construction Building Collapses, Injures a Woman

Banteay Meanchey: A woman was injured after a six-storey guesthouse being constructed has collapsed on Saturday at Srah Sour, O'Chrov Village, Sangkat Poipet, Poipet City, Banteay Meanchey Province. The injured person was identified as Ny Srey Nich, 19, a construction worker of the building constructed.
