PHNOM PENH (AFP) - Cambodia's opposition leaders were questioned in court on Tuesday in connection with recent protests against strongman premier Hun Sen - a case they denounced as politically motivated.

Prosecutors at Phnom Penh Municipal Court spent several hours grilling Sam Rainsy and his deputy Kem Sokha about unrest that led to a bloody police crackdown on striking garment workers.

No charges have been brought against them.

"The problem is a political one. As long as there is no political solution yet, there will be a judicial issue pending," Rainsy said at a press conference after the closed-door hearing.
