In Brief: Dangkor families face eviction

More than 100 families living in Dangkor district's Chom Chao commune near Phnom Penh International Airport travelled to Prime Minister Hun Sen's Takhmao residence last week to deliver a letter of complaint over plans to uproot their community to make way for an expansion of the airport. Chan Sam An, a representative of the families, said that city officials had given him and other residents three options: voluntarily remove their houses and receive an unspecified amount of compensation, voluntarily relocate to a site along Russian Boulevard, or be forcibly relocated.
