The deputy chief of Siem Reap Provincial Police, Pheung Chendareth, said workers were pouring cement for the ceiling of the temple when it suddenly collapsed, trapping the workers and two monks who were helping them.

He said the body of one worker was found under the debris and two other workers died at a hospital.
