Thousands of garment workers joined rights advocates and others on a march in Phnom Penh Monday, marking the 64th International Human Rights Day. The march moved from the Olympic Stadium to Freedom Park. Separately, a group of housing rights activists say they were blocked by police from submitting a petition to Prime Minister Hun Sen, leading to minor clashes. One NGO observer was arrested after he photographed Phnom Penh Police Chief Chhoun Sovann. The observer was later released. (VOA Khmer Heng Reaksmey and Reuters, Phnom Penh)
