Opposition leader Sam Rainsy has returned to Cambodia, days before a general election.

Mr Rainsy had been living in France after being jailed in absentia in 2010 on charges he said were politically motivated.

But he was granted a royal pardon last week and was greeted by crowds as he arrived back in Phnom Penh.

Adnan Nawaz reports.
