Beehive FM stung

The Ministry of Information (MoI) has ordered the independent Beehive Radio station

to cease live news broadcasts from the Voice of America and Radio Free Asia. Khieu

Kanharith, MoI secretary of state, said further broadcasts of the Khmer-language

news shows would require government permission. Mom Sonando, the head of Beehive,

expressed disappointment at the decision, which came one month after it started the

broadcasts. "The programs have proved very helpful in developing human resources

and educating people." Both VOA and RFA have tried unsuccessfully for years

for an FM broadcast license here. Beehive FM is the country's only independent radio

station.
