Cambodian opposition figure Sam Rainsy allowed entry to Malaysia - witness

KUALALUMPUR (Reuters) – Self-exiled Cambodian opposition figure Sam Rainsy was allowed to enter Malaysia on Saturday, according to a Reuters witness at Kuala Lumpur’s main airport.

Sam Rainsy, who has vowed to return home to lead demonstrations against Cambodia’s authoritarian ruler Hun Sen, was earlier taken aside by Malaysian immigration authorities after he landed at the airport. [nL8N27P0A3]
