Buddhist monks who are supporters of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), react during a protest as party leader Sam Rainsy announces the result of a meeting with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, at Freedom Park in Phnom Penh. Hun Sen met opposition leader Sam Rainsy for talks and officials said they had agreed to look at how future general elections are held but the long-serving premier refused to give in to demands for an independent inquiry into the July 28 poll. The protest was staged a day after police used force to scatter protesters challenging a disputed election win by Hun Sen, sparking clashes in which one man was shot dead.
