Cambodia Daily

The Cambodia Daily is an independent newspaper published five days a week in Phnom Penh. It was established to provide a foundation for a free press in Cambodia and to train a new generation of journalists. Its founder and publisher is a veteran American journalist who covered Cambodia in the 1960s for Newsweek and saw an opportunity to help the fledgling democracy by launching a newspaper here after the U.N.-supervised elections of 1993. Cambodia, which suffered intolerable pain and misery through the genocide by the Pol Pot regime of 1975 to 1979 that cost the lives of more than 1 million of its people, remains one of the poorest nations in the region. It is afflicted by a multitude of problems including HIV/AIDS, millions of buried land mines, a high level of malaria infection in the rural areas, and general medical shortcomings. Crime, corruption and the illegal logging of Cambodia’s forests have further hampered its development. Source
