Day 3: Election protest rally in Phnom Penh

25th October: I managed to join the rally in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. A peaceful protest, on the third and final day, at the Freedom Park. Led by the opposition, I estimated 5,000 people were cheering, applauding and singing by late afternoon. The Cambodian National Rescue Party has rejected the election results and demanding that PM Hun Sen facilitates an independent investigation.
