World's largest freshwater fish caught in Cambodia – video

The world's largest ever freshwater fish has been caught in Cambodia's Mekong River, according to US and Cambodian scientists. The giant stingray measured almost 4 metres from snout to tail, and weighed in at just under 300kg (660lb). The previous world record was a 293kg (646lb) Mekong giant catfish, caught in Thailand in 2005.

The stingray was snagged by a local fisher on the night of 13 June, south of the town of Stung Treng
