Cambodian textile workers shot during protest

PHNOM PENH (AFP) - Several Cambodian textile workers were shot and wounded on Monday when a man opened fire at a thousands-strong protest at an industrial zone in the east of the kingdom, officials said. The shooting, which some local media said was carried out by a security guard, came as workers forced their way into garment factories, hurled rocks and tried to light fires, according to the authorities. 'Police only fired warning shots in the air,' said national police spokesman Kirt Chantharith, adding that authorities were investigating the incident. About 6,000 workers from four factories gathered to demand better work conditions, including lunch money, at the economic zone in Bavet in eastern Svay Rieng province, officials said.
