Four shot in Svay Rieng

Breaking: Svay Rieng province

At least four workers were shot this morning during a protest outside a shoe factory in Cambodia that supplies the sportswear brand PUMA, leaving two in critical condition.

Workers have alleged that a police officer opened fire on protestors outside the Kaoway Sports Ltd. factory in Bavet town, Svay Rieng province, near Cambodia’s border with Vietnam.

More than 6,000 workers were throwing rocks at the factory in protest of unfair working conditions, police said, but denied an officer had shot anyone.

PUMA has said it is investigating the case and will issue an official statement shortly.

Government officials have thus far declined to comment or been unavailable.

Kaoway Sports Ltd. have not been available for comment.
