Land sacrificed for Cambodia developers

An estimated half a million people have been affected by land grabbing in Cambodia amid confusion over ownership.

    Cambodia's opposition politicians have finally taken their seats in parliament, more than a year after disputed elections.
     
    Activists hope the end of the political deadlock will also bring about an end to the worsening crisis of "land grabbing".

    More than half a million people have been affected by the practice in recent years, with hundreds of thousands of homes sacrificed for a developer's dream.

    Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports from Phnom Penh.
