Villagers and local authorities continued to argue over a 4-hectare plot of land in Phnom Penh’s Russei Keo district on Monday, a day after officials promised to measure and issue a title for it. District council chief Prak Channa on Sunday promised to issue a land title for the Khtor pagoda after villagers on Friday set fire to an excavator they said the Eng Kaing Development Company was using to destroy a crematorium at the pagoda.
