Cambodia opposition boycotts parliament

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy accuses ruling party of widespread vote rigging in July polls.

    Cambodia's parliament has convened for the first time since disputed elections in July this year.

    The opposition, led by Sam Rainsy, however, boycotted the opening session in the capital Phnom Penh.

    Rainsy accused the ruling party of widespread vote-rigging in the election that returned Prime Minister Hun Sen to power.
