Huge Flood From Failed Dam In Laos Has Now Spread To Cambodia

Children and a woman sit on a locally made vehicle in Laos as they travel during flooding caused by the collapse of the Xepian-Xe Nam Noy dam in Attapeu province.

The flooding has killed at least 27 people in Laos. In Cambodia, the Sekong River rose to nearly 12 meters (almost 40 feet) on Thursday — a height that flooded 17 villages.
