Homeowners near Phnom Penh's Olympic Market have been barred from
renting the pavement space outside their houses to fish vendors.
Homeowner Eung Thong said the ban would be good for the neighbourhood
but would cost him the US$5 a day he had made from renting it out.
Another owner, Vor Phaly, felt the ban would likely last only until the
end of the month. District police Chief Uch Sokhon said: "Police have
been ordered to tell house owners not to rent the sidewalk to vendors
because we want this street to be clean."
