Coup anniversary

Funcinpec has shifted its ceremony to mark the fifth anniversary of the July 5/6, 1997 fighting between it and the ruling CPP which redefined Cambodian politics. Party leader Prince Ranariddh announced a new date of July 10 and 11 "to avoid problems". PM Hun Sen had earlier said people wanted to hear good news rather than bad. The CPP had "no intention to counter attack", but he warned the party's patience was "always limited". Ranariddh said the postponed ceremony would honor all who had given their lives for the party since its formation two decades ago. The opposition SRP said it would go ahead with its plans on July 6 to commemorate those who died in the coup.
