American Woman Slain In Cambodia

Mon., Jan. 16, 1995

Gunmen killed an American woman and seriously injured her husband Sunday as the couple toured the Angkor Wat temple complex, Cambodia’s biggest tourist attraction.

A provincial official said the gunmen were Khmer Rouge guerrillas, but that could not be confirmed.

The Americans were headed to Banteay Srey, one of several 12thcentury temples in Angkor Wat. Their Cambodian interpreter also was killed when their vehicle was struck by a grenade.

The woman was identified as Susan Ginsburg Hadden of Austin, Texas.
