Islam in Cambodia

Cambodia's 500,000 Cham Muslims live quietly alongside their neighbors in rural areas and urban centers from Battambang to Kampong Cham provinces.

The Chams have their own language and culture, a civilization within a nation. VOA Khmer presents an occasional series on one of Cambodia's often-forgotten cultures.
