US concern

Senior US officials expressed concern about the Cambodian "situation" recently.

Secretary of State Colin Powell said he would raise the issue with Cambodian and

regional politicians when he attends an ASEAN meeting here on June 18. The concerns

are believed to relate to the January 29 anti-Thai riots, and recent political and

judicial killings. A report from AFP quoted a US State Department official as saying

that the US was "deeply concerned" at the climate of violence, corruption

and the weak rule of law.
