The below video montage uploaded to YouTube exposes the vicious brutality of Tuesday’s crackdown on protesting garment factory workers outside Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Police fired live ammunition during the clashes , killing a bystander who was struck by a bullet while selling rice and injuring at least 20 people.
The video clearly shows police brutalizing defenceless youths and shows one police officer loading a handgun. Nevertheless, police deny any responsibility for Tuesday’s fatality, reports The Cambodia Daily. NOTE: Parts of the footage may upset some viewers.
Game-changing (dance music!) video on the recent clashes in Phnom Penh – the face of police brutality. Expect viral! http://t.co/3kECfTVJiA

This image from the Associated Press pretty much sums up the thuggery:
Also, an excellent report here on the crackdown from the team at The Cambodia Daily
