Cambodian police clash with opposition supporters
PHNOM PENH (AP) - Cambodian riot police clashed with opposition party supporters Sunday in the capital as a new wave of demonstrations against Prime Minister Hun Sen's government kicked off with a vow that the protests would not stop until the nation's post-election deadlock is resolved.
At least one policeman was injured in the violence. Most of Phnom Penh was calm, however, as around 20,000 people rallied at a city park earlier in the day to push for an independent investigation of results from the July election.
The opposition says that it should have won a majority of seats in parliament, but that the election was marred by irregularities.
The government had warned protesters to stay off the streets, but thousands of them marched across various parts of the city throughout the day.
