VIDEO: Cambodia’s brutal protest crackdown

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 DailyNOTE: Parts of the footage may upset some viewers.
