Villagers call off protest over land

Farmers in Kampong Cham province’s Tbong Khmum district delayed a planned demonstration in front of the provincial hall Tuesday, called after employees of the local Cambodian Veterans Association branch descended on 803 hectares of disputed land with excavators, villagers said. The protest was intended to voice outrage over the Association’s attempts to clear the land, which it says it was awarded in a social land concession. Village representatives say 160 families stand to be affected by the concession, while the association has claimed that only 10 families legitimately live there.
