Grenade stupa removed again

Municipal authorities removed the fifth Sam Rainsy Party grenade victim memorial

stupa on June 12 backed by watercannon and baton-wielding police.

At least three people were reported injured in the melee that ensued, prompting US

Ambassador Kent Weide-mann to mediate an emergency meeting between Chea Sophara and

Sam Rainsy on June 13 in an attempt to diffuse tensions.

Municipal authorities contend the stupa's location violates local zoning laws. Rainsy

has asked King Sihanouk to intervene.
