Ang Chanrith, executive director of the Khmer Kampuchea Krom Human Rights Organisation, said that all 24 people, members of an ethnic minority in Vietnam, will travel to the capital today to seek help. The group was deported to Cambodia on December 5 by Thai authorities, and members say could face persecution if returned to Vietnam.
