3 generations of women murdered in new multiple killing in Cambodia

Phnom Penh - Three Cambodian women from the same family were killed in their home in the country's second multiple murder in as many days, local media reported Tuesday.

Police said the three victims - 70-year-old Eng Ly, her daughter and her 20-year-old granddaughter - were killed early Monday in Siem Reap province in the country's north-west.

The attackers slit their throats after raping the youngest woman, The Phnom Penh Post newspaper reported.

The police chief of Siem Reap town said robbery was likely behind the killings.

'This is the cruellest murder I have seen since I became police chief over 10 years ago,' Thoeung Chantharith told the newspaper.

'We are working to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice,' he said.

A vendor discovered the bodies in the early morning as he delivered ice to the home where the family ran a small grocery business.

On Sunday, a Cambodian man was shot dead by police in the north-eastern province of Ratanakkiri after allegedly stabbing to death his brother-in-law and three unrelated children in two attacks.
