Demonstrators in the southeastern province of Koh Kong clashed briefly with security forces yesterday, as they marched on the local town hall and court to demand the release of three detained activists.
A villager who was at the protest said that when the group reached Khemarak Phumin town’s Domg Tong Market, they were met by about 20 mixed security forces who blocked their path.
“They grabbed us and tried to arrest one of us, but we dragged that protester away. My child was beaten . . . [but] we arrived at the court and will continue to protest,” villager Phav Nhemg said.
