The worst storm to hit the area since 1904, Linda swept into the Gulf of Thailand after crossing the tip of Vietnam, claiming the lives of many fishermen and nine people in Thailand. Cambodian officials said yesterday that the number of fishermen who drowned in Cambodian waters rose to 25 while more than 100 were still missing. - Reuters, Hanoi
