A teacher at the Royal University of Fine Arts plays a traditional pin piat as a

young apsara dancer rehearses just days before those living on campus were relocated.

Resident Oum Sarun said that since July 1, 16 more of the original 53 families who

lived at the university agreed to move in exchange for an unspecified amount of compensation

and a 5-by-10 meter plot of land near the new building in Russei Keo, 4 kms away.

In February the government swapped the university campus for a new plot of land which

is yet to be developed.
