Cambodia blocks garment workers' protest

Demonstrations and labour activists demand release of workers arrested during previous protests.

    A heavy police presence in Cambodia appears to have halted a planned rally against the mistreatment of garment workers.

    There were supposed to be demonstrations demanding the release of 23 people arrested during previous protests.

    But the government is also under pressure to improve the situation of garment workers, with dozens of global brands and unions calling for a resolution to the situation.
