Cambodia's opposition leaders were questioned for four hours at a Phnom Penh court on Tuesday, but they were not held on charges related to the incitement of violence during recent demonstrations. Also questioned was Rong Chhun, the outspoken head of the Cambodia Confederation of Unions. All three are accused of stirring up violence in opposition and worker demonstrations that have posed a challenge to the government of Prime Minister Hun Sen. Sam Rainsy, the president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, and Kem Sokha, its vice president, told reporters after leaving the court Tuesday they would continue to call for non-violent demonstrations and for a recall election following July's polls, which they say were marred by fraud.
