Villagers attacked

ABOUT 415 families from Poi Pet in Banteay Meanchey have asked the Prime Minister

for help after their settlement came under fire from soldiers in the area.

In a letter written by the villagers, printed in Reasmei Kampuchea, they complained

that they were poor but were subject to threats every day by the soldiers who want

to seize their land.

The villagers said that on Sep 26 the soldiers fired into 10 houses, seriously injuring

an eight-year-old girl.
