Massive fighting between police and protesters as upwards of 30 groups defy a ban on demonstrations.
Pnomh Penh, Cambodia
Around 1,000 factory workers demonstrate against low wages, and are attacked by police with five workers injured.
In Phnom Pehn, civilian auxiliary police, armed with clubs and often used by the government to break up protests, turned on the demonstrators after opposition leaders spoke to the crowd of nearly 1,000. The assaults appeared to be random and limited, and were over in less than an hour.
At least five people were hurt, said Om Sam Ath, an officer of the human rights group Licadho.
“These security forces seem to be addicted to beating people,” he said. “Every time they disperse protesters, they beat people, and not one of them has been arrested.”
