PHNOM PENH -- The Cambodian government on Thursday issued an order banning most travel throughout the country for a week, in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Issued with little warning, the order, signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen, comes ahead of Cambodia's new year holiday, when many people visit their families in the countryside.
