Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha tour Siem Reap

 

SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA

Opposition leaders Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha toured Siem Reap during a rally that lasted for hours and finished at Cambodia’s iconic temple of Angkor Wat. Supported by thousands on trucks and motorbikes, the CNRP leaders addressed the crowds in front of the temple, calling for Cambodians to take control over their iconic heritage site – Angkor Wat’s ticketing control has been leased to Sokimex, a company owned by Vietnamese descent business man Sok Kong.
