Boeung Kak flooded; protesters broken up

Police  wielding riot shields and electric batons yesterday dispersed a protest involving about 50  lake residents trying to draw attention to flooding they said had been exacerbated by recent heavy rains. “We cannot stand living in flooded homes with polluted water,” said Kong Chantha who addressed reporters yesterday while standing in knee-deep water shortly before leading the march to City Hall. http://www.phnompenhpost.com/index.php/2010101343953/National-news/police-violently-break-up-protest-of-lakeside-floods.html
