Exiled leader promises thousands will walk with him in Cambodia through Thailand in a challenge to Hun Sen

Self-exiled Cambodia opposition leader Sam Rainsy had planned to rally with thousands of his supporters to march into Cambodia through the Thai border last Saturday, but his plan faltered after he was barred from flying to Bangkok from Paris.

In an interview with Malaysiakini in Putrajaya he repeated his wish to organise a huge rally of Cambodian exiles and opponents to the regime of Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Thai Airways blocked Rainsy from boarding a flight from Paris to Bangkok. He landed in Malaysia this weekend and was given the honour of visiting Parliament.
