Angkor concert to fight trafficking

American rock band The Click Five plans a concert at Cambodia's famed Angkor Wat temple next month as part of the campaign against human trafficking, organiser MTV music channel said Monday. The December 7 concert by the group, which is popular in Southeast Asia, is part of a series of music shows in Cambodia organised by MTV and the US Agency for International Development to raise awareness among young people about human trafficking. Cambodia has struggled to shed its reputation as soft on human trafficking, and earlier this year suspended marriages between foreigners and Cambodians amid concerns they were being used to traffic poor, uneducated women. The previous international recording artist to perform at Angkor Wat, built in the 12th century and listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site, was tenor Jose Carreras, who sang for a charity gala dinner there in 2002.
