Asylum seekers sought by Cambodia and Viet Nam

Twenty-five Montagnard asylum seekers hiding in the jungles of Cambodia are being sought by Cambodian police with the help of Vietnamese agents, The Cambodia Daily reported Wednesday. The non-governmental organization Adhoc is worried that the individuals will be arrested and deported, as was reportedly the case last month with 10 other Montagnards.

The provincial police chief for Ratanakkiri, Ray Rai, claims the extra police in the region are only there for extra security during the Khmer New Year.
