Cambodians fight for their homes

More than 20 years after the end of Cambodia's civil war, another battle is being waged on the country's streets - over land.

Local human rights groups say the government has allocated around four million hectares to businesses for redevelopment, affecting 400,000 people - many of whom have been evicted.

In 2012, more than 200 people were arrested during protests over land.

The BBC's Jonathan Head spoke to some of the people in the capital Phnom Penh fighting for their homes.
