'Tiger head' trial to reopen today

Phnom Penh Municipal Court is to resume the trial today of five men accused of a series of failed bomb plots in the capital in 2007 and 2009. The men are accused of being members of the Khmer National Unity Front, also known as the Tiger Head Movement, a group that officials say unsuccessfully attempted to plant bombs at the Cambodia-Vietnamese Friendship Monument in 2007 and outside the Defence Ministry and state television station TV3 in January of this year. Sam Sokong, a lawyer for one of the suspects, said further evidence has yet to be presented in the case.
