Violence Mars Cambodian Protests Over Elections

Tens of thousands of Cambodians turned out for opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party-led demonstrations in the capital Phnom Penh on Sunday to challenge election results that handed Prime Minister Hun Sen’s party a victory. On the sidelines of the protest in Freedom Park, one protester was shot dead and several others were left injured in a clash with police near Kbal Thanal bridge. In another incident near the Royal Palace, police used teargas and water cannons to disperse protesters who removed barbed-wire barricades.
