ABOUT 30 residents of the Rik Reay community burned car tyres Tuesday to protest the development company Bassac Garden City, a resident told the Post.

Chheun Buntheun, the community representative, said, "We are protesting against the company for trying to fill our land with six residential houses."

He said the community would continue its protest at Bassac Garden City today.

Phnom Phen Governor Kep Chuktema said the residents could choose either US$10,000 and a house in Dangkor district or stay in onsite housing when they are forced out of their current shelters.
