Tropical storm kills 3 Cambodian fisherman

world Updated: Jul 26, 2012 11:14 IST

Three Cambodian fishermen were killed when their boat capsized due to strong winds and rain caused by Tropical Storm Vincente. Authorities say the men's bodies were pulled from the Tonle Sap lake on Wednesday in Pursat province, northwest of the capital, Phnom Penh.

Local governor Khoy Sokha says the men were among seven people fishing in a boat on Tuesday when the storm struck and flipped the boat. Four others were rescued.

Cambodian authorities have warned that heavy rains could last through Thursday due to Vincente, which has been downgraded from a typhoon to a tropical storm.
