When the United Nations Actually Works

From The Phnom Penh Post:

Officers from the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights made a dramatic public entrance into the post-election fray on Sunday afternoon when a white SUV from their office pulled up in front of police barricades at Sisowath Quay to wild applause after authorities clashed with demonstrators.

Later that evening, UN rights officials “helped to defuse the tension around the removal of the body of a victim” and transported the body to the hospital for autopsy, after 29-year-old Mao Sok Chan was shot dead by military police at the Kbal Thnal overpass, Lee confirmed.

Thomas Cristofoletti’s blog has some amazing photos from the protests.
