Cambodia protest camp broken up

Cambodian authorities have removed an estimated 1,000 anti-government demonstrators from a park in the capital, Phnom Penh.

The protesters, who had been there almost a month, have been joined by striking workers in calling for Prime Minister Hun Sen to resign and hold fresh elections.

The eviction came a day after police opened fire on garment factory workers, killing four and injuring several.
