In Brief: Market vendors back on the job

Vendors from Takeo province's Tonloab market who protested outside Prime Minister Hun Sen's Takhmao residence earlier this month are back at work, vendors and government officials said on Wednesday. Following an order this week from Deputy Prime Minister Sok An, 28 newly built stalls at the market in Takeo's Kirivong district were destroyed to make room for vendors, who claim market owners attempted to force them out. Some vendors are being housed at the old market, while others will be given places once construction finishes at an adjacent site, Kirivong district Governor Tek Songlim said.
