PHNOM PENH: Fifty Cambodian Buddhist monks protested outside the Vietnamese embassy on Tuesday, calling on the communist-run nation's visiting president, Nguyen Minh Triet, to allow greater freedom of religion.


More than 100 riot police armed with electric-shock batons and AK-47 rifles lined up outside the embassy as officials tried to persuade the saffron-robed monks to leave.

The protesters said police in southern Vietnam had recently arrested and disrobed nine ethnic Cambodian Buddhist monks.

"We want the Vietnamese authorities to give them the right to practice Buddhism," one of the monks, Hol Pirom, said.

Triet was due to meet King Norodom Sihamoni on Tuesday at the start of a two-day state visit to its Southeast Asian neighbour.

He will also hold talks with Prime Minister Hun Sen, a former Khmer Rouge guerrilla who fled to Vietnam in the late 1970s before returning with the 1979 invasion that brought an end to Pol Pot's four-year reign of terror.

Appointed prime minister of the Hanoi-backed regime in 1985, Hun Sen has been criticised frequently by nationalists as being pro-Vietnamese. However, he says he is merely normalising relations with one his country's most important trading partners.

Vietnam denies accusations by international human rights groups that it represses human rights and religious freedoms. The government has an official policy of a citizen's rights to "belief or non-belief".

Good for them to protest (just as long as it's peaceful). And why would Vietnamese gov want to suppress Buddhism?

Vietnamese have their own different way of practicing while the Khmer krom People,the true owner of South Vietnam has our own way of practicing buddhism.

Keep doing what you are doing Vietnam. Your cruel acts against the owner of South Vietnam will only bring more lights to the future of Khmer krom people.

buddhist monks should practice the art of khmer martial arts so everyone would think twice to fu-k with them.. it's the self defense that'll earn total respect, not just holiness and spirituality.
