Phnom Penh (FN) May 19 – The remains of four Cambodian peacekeepers who sacrificed their lives in Central Africa, are expected to arrive in Cambodia on Saturday.

“DPM Tea Banh, along with the armed forces and police, will be present to receive the bodies and return them to their homes in Phnom Penh, Pursat, Siem Reap, and Svay Rieng,” reported the deputy Secretary General of The National Center for Peacekeeping Forces, Mine, and ERW Clearance (NCPFMEC)

The four fatalities occurred May 8, after rebels attacked UN's MINUSCA.
