Radio Australia – August 11, 2008

Kuwait has pledged five million US dollars for Cambodian Islamic institutions, including renovating the dilapidated International Dubai Mosque near Boeung Kak Lake.

The Phnom Penh Post reports the donation allays concerns the mosque will be forced to close once the planned development of the lakeside in Phnom Penh is under way.

Kuwait’s Prime Minister announced the aid during his recent visit to Cambodia.

Some of the money will go towards building a mosque and school in Ratanakkiri province, where about 60 members of the Jarai ethnic minority have converted to Islam.
