Monument under threat?

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy told local media he would oppose any plans to demolish

the monument for the victims of the March 30, 1997 grenade attack. The monument,

located in a public park in front of the National Assembly, may have to make way

for a new garden area planned by City Hall. Rainsy said he would only allow the monument

to be demolished if City Hall also removed the nearby Victory Monument that commemorates

the deaths of Vietnamese soldiers during the 1978-79 war.
