U.S. State Department Official Visits Cambodia

A U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh's news release Friday says that its high ranking official plans to have an official visit to Cambodia for what is perceived to be to monitor the human rights abuse and democracy in Cambodia.

This visit happens after human rights abuse and democracy suffers due to criticisms against the government, leading to the arrests and imprisonment of independent human rights activists.

Those activists were later released after international and US pressure.
