In Brief: Two dozen arrests in poipet dispute

A total of 24 people, including factory workers, a Sam Rainsy Party commune councillor and a provincial director for the NGO Independent Democracy of Informal Economic Association (IDEA), remain in detention after a clash with government forces during an eviction in Poipet, Banteay Meanchey province, on Friday. The detainees were among a group of around 40 people protesting the court-ordered eviction, which ended a long-simmering land dispute between a businessman and six local families.
