Cambodia targets land protesters

Activists caught organising land-grab protests face punishment as government enforces strict law.

    At least 400,000 Cambodians are affected by increasingly common land disputes in the Southeast Asian country.

    Now, the government has decided to crack down on protests against land grabs by arresting anyone caught organising a protest.

    Already more than a dozen people have been charged.
