Australian shot dead in Cambodia

Cambodian police say they are investigating the killing of an Australian man shot dead on the weekend at a guesthouse in the capital Phnom Penh.

The 44-year-old Australian, named by local media as Eric Liu, flew into Cambodia on Saturday evening and was shot in the chest in the guesthouse's reception area.

He died in hospital the same day.

"He has a Cambodian fiancee. After he landed, he met with his fiancee and they went to a guesthouse where he was shot by two suspects," national police spokesman Kirt Chantharith said, declining to give more details.

Police refused to speculate on the motive for the killing.
