Cambodian police stop protest recalling oppression
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - Police in Cambodia broke up a protest on Sunday that was meant to highlight the oppression of Cambodia's people by political figures.
The protest sought to point out on the eve of a historic visit by President Barack Obama that United States (US) actions were allegedly partly responsible for the rise of Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge and their genocidal rule.
Protest organiser Theary Seng called her action "Poetic Justice Dart Games," with pictures of former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and others emblazoned on poster-sized dart boards set up on a busy riverside boulevard.
Although the protest was peaceful, police began removing the posters soon after they were set up, even as Ms Theary Seng sought to negotiate with them.
