In Brief: Dey krahorm protest cancelled

A protest by former Dey Krahorm

residents set to take place in front of Hun Sen's house Tuesday was

cancelled after City Hall agreed to meet to discuss potential

compensation. The former residents want US$20,000 from the private

developer 7NG, which evicted them on January 24. Horn Sar, who since

the eviction has been living in a makeshift shelter in a field at the

relocation site, Damnak Trayoeng, said the former residents would go

ahead with the protest if the meeting today is "not positive".
