Cambodia: Bridge of Ghosts; A Country in Mourning
On November 22, 2010, nearly 450 people died in a stampede on a bridge over the Bassac River on the last day of a three-day annual Water Festival in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The festival brings millions people from the provinces to celebrate the end of the rain season.
Cambodia's Prime Minister, Hun Sen, called it the worst tragedy since the Khmer Rouge.
