Supporters of independent Beehive Radio and its director Mam Sonando defied a government ban on public gatherings on Monday and staged a protest march toward the Ministry of Information over its refusal to grant Sonando licenses to expand its broadcast range and establish a TV station.

Cambodian authorities violently dispersed the protesters using electric batons and smoke bombs, leaving a handful injured and bloody.
