Sam Rainsy Returns to Cambodia

Published July 19, 2013

Cambodia’s opposition leader, Sam Rainsy, returned to the country on Friday, July 19, 2013, after more than three years of self-imposed exile, kneeling to kiss the ground after he landed and addressing throngs of supporters who crowded Phnom Penh’s parks and boulevards to greet him. “We go together to rescue the country,” he said through a loudspeaker from the back of a truck, as it gradually moved through the cheering crowd.
