Residents of three villages in Kompong Cham province’s Krala commune are growing increasingly frustrated with problems caused by a local garbage dump, saying it is a health hazard and that it emits an unpleasant odor. Khat Seang, chief of Tuol Porpel village, said the frustration may spark protests over the weekend if no action is taken by Cintri, the waste management company in charge of the dump. “I’ve been telling people to calm down and solve this through legal channels, but I’m afraid that they cannot stand this much longer,” he said.
