Representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia on Monday handed over the bodies of six Vietnamese citizens, who were killed in a traffic accident in the northwestern Cambodian province of Siem Reap nearly two weeks ago, to border guards in the southern Vietnamese province of Tay Ninh and their families.

Five other Vietnamese people who were injured in the accident were also repatriated.

The serious accident happened in Siem Reap’s Chikreng District on the evening of November 5. 

Cambodian authorities immediately arrived at the scene to handle the incident and take the injured to hospitals for emergency treatment.

After receiving the news, the Vietnamese General Consulate in the northwestern province of Battambang contacted local authorities to verify the information and ask for medical care for the injured. 

It also sent staff to the scene, which is about 160km from Battambang, to conduct citizen protection measures.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Cambodia called on a number of donors to cover the costs for the funeral arrangements and repatriation of the victims.

On November 6, the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs contacted the Cambodian Embassy in Hanoi to ask for assistance for the victims.
