Cambodia's Hun Sen hails extraction of country's 'first drop of oil'

Cambodian premier Hun Sen announced Tuesday that the kingdom had extracted its first drop of crude oil from its waters, a long-awaited milestone for one of Southeast Asia's poorest nations. The discovery also raised concerns about how Cambodia -- a country long ranked poorly in terms of transparency -- would use its new-found wealth, but Hun Sen, Asia's longest-serving leader, dismissed them, calling the extraction "a blessing" for Cambodians.
