Opposition leader to return to Cambodia

Self-exiled Cambodian opposition party founder Sam Rainsy says he will return on Saturday to face arrest amid a crackdown at home on members of his banned party and Malaysia’s detention of two party activists trying to return.

The former finance minister has vowed to return to lead demonstrations against the one-party rule of longtime Prime Minister Hun Sen, whom he called “a brutal dictator”.

His return could be thwarted by Thailand, whose prime minister said he would not be allowed entry en route to Cambodia.
