A grenade has been lobbed at a wedding party in Cambodia, killing nine people and wounding 30 others, including the bride and groom.

A seven-year-old girl was among those killed in the attack, which is thought to have been carried out by a man who was in love with the bride.

The military police in central Kampong Thom province say the grenade was thrown as guests were dancing.

AFP reports police are investigating the attack but no one has yet been arrested.
