Housing Activists Clash With Police in Street Protest​

At least two women were injured Monday as housing rights activists clashed with police in Phnom Penh. The activists had been demonstrating by sitting in a major street in front of City Hall to demand land titles in two ongoing land disputes in the capital. Riot police eventually dispersed them by force. Rights groups said one pregnant woman, Hek Chan Reaksmey, miscarried following a blow to her abdomen in the clash. (Khoun Theara, Phnom Penh)
