  • VOA Khmer

Angry protesters gathered before Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday to demand the release of two jailed housing rights activists, performing spiritual rituals to curse court officials in a sign of their growing desperation. Some protesters threw salt and chilies at the court building, calling on Buddha to help victims of land grabs and praying that court officials be “demolished.” VOA Khmer's Heng Reaksmey and Say Mony report from Phnom Penh.
