In a high-end casino fire that broke out at midnight on December 28 in Poipet town, Banteay Meanchey province, near the Thai border, at least 10 people were murdered and 30 more were hurt.

Nhem Phoeng, the Poipet town hall’s administrative chief, reported that as of the morning of December 29, the flames were still burning.

More than 400 people, mostly Thais, were stuck at the Grand Diamond City casino, according to Phoeng, who spoke to The Post.

In Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province’s Aranyaprathet district, as of 9:10 am, more than 10 people had perished and more than 30 others had been injured, according to him, stressing that the majority of the dead were both Thai and Cambodian workers.

According to Kun Kim, vice-president of the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM), commandos and helicopters had been dispatched to the casino, which is close to the Poipet International Border Checkpoint, to rescue those who were trapped inside.

According to Phoeng, investigators are still trying to figure out what started the fire.
