Princely Hunger Strike…

Prince Sisowath Thomico, a member of the opposition CNRP (and ousted from the FUNCINPEC a few years ago), planned to start a hunger strike at the riverfront pagoda this morning at 10:00 to protest the results of the 2013 parliamentary election results, but he had to revise his plan and settle for Wat Phnom.

UPDATE: Police forces evicted Prince Sisowath Thomico from Wat Phnom during the night, possibly having arrested a few monks in the process.

The other 2013 elections photographs are HERE.
