Sources: Malaysia detains Cambodian opposition party vice-president

Malaysian authorities have detained an official of a banned Cambodian opposition party, rights officials said, after neighbouring Thailand blocked her bid to return home and Cambodia sought her arrest after a news conference in Indonesia.

Mu Sochua, the vice-president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), was held at the airport in the Malaysian capital ahead of her return, intended by Saturday, along with that of the party’s founder, Sam Rainsy.
