Soldiers in armored personnel carriers (APCs) were stationed in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Thursday amid persistent government warnings that the opposition’s plans to contest the preliminary results of the July 28 national election will not be tolerated. Though Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) officials have denied any connection between reported movements of troops and APCs and the contested election result, yesterday was the first time heavy armor has been deployed anywhere in the country other than the Thai border in a decade.
