French company Compagnie Nationale du Rhone has hit back at criticism over its report into the potential effects of the Xayaburi hydro dam project in Laos.

International Rivers has taken aim at CNR’s report for not covering trans-boundary issues, including potential problems Xayaburi could cause in Cambodia.
