Hun Sen's foe returns home

Cambodia's former finance minister Sam Rainsy, who along with the deposed Prince Norodom Ranariddh heads the country's opposition, returned home yesterday, calling for peace and compromise.

Sam Rainsy left Cambodia several weeks before the powerful Second Prime Minister Hun Sen toppled his former coalition partner Ranariddh in early July. He was mobbed by supporters when he arrived at Phnom Penh airport. Sam Rainsy is the most prominent opposition politician to return since Hun Sen's takeover.
