Cambodia police clash with protesters at Nike contractor

Police in Cambodia have clashed with thousands of workers outside a factory making clothes for the US sportswear company, Nike.

Violence flared as police tried to break up a confrontation between those on strike and those who are working.

The striking workers want the owners of the factory outside the capital Phnom Penh to increase their pay.

Cambodia's garment industry employs hundreds of thousands of people and is the country's biggest export earner.
