PHNOM PENH: The Camb-odian government yesterday warned foreigners to stay away from opposition protests against a hotly disputed election as thousands of riot police practised crowd control in the capital.
Authorities and security forces would “avoid potential clashes at all costs” said the government ahead of expected September 7 mass opposition protests against the poll results. “All foreigners living in the Kingdom of Cambodia should keep a reasonable distance from all protests related to the election,” the statement said.
