Buddhist prayer ceremony held in Cambodia for missing Thai activist

The sister of a Thai pro-democracy activist who rights groups say was abducted by unknown gunmen in Cambodia called on Friday for authorities to solve the case after holding a Buddhist prayer ceremony to mark six months since his disappearance.

Wanchalearm Satsaksit, 37, was bundled into a vehicle in front of his Phnom Penh apartment in June, New York-based Human Rights Watch said. Cambodian police have previously said they were unaware a kidnapping had taken place.

During the brief ceremony outside Wanchalearm’s apartment, Buddhist monks chanted and scattered sacred water.
