Appeals Court Orders Release of Thirteen Boeung Kak Protesters

Thirteen women hastily convicted in May after their arrest in a land demonstration were released from jail on Wednesday, following a decision by the Appeals Court. As the women were being released, about 200 of their fellow Boeung Kak residents were blocked by riot police from demonstrating in front of the court. Police pushed back the protesters, who retaliated by throwing water bottles at them. (Photos by Heng Reaksmey, VOA Khmer)
