The Korea Times - - WORLD -

KUALA LUMPUR (AP) — Malaysia’s gov­ern­ment said Thurs­day it de­tained the No. 2 of­fi­cial of a banned Cam­bo­dian op­po­si­tion party, as re­gional coun­tries backed Ph­nom Penh’s bid to block the re­turn of self-ex­iled lead­ers ac­cused of plot­ting to over­throw the gov­ern­ment.

For­eign Min­is­ter Sai­fud­din Ab­dul­lah said Mu Sochua, vice pres­i­dent of the Cam­bo­dia Na­tional Res­cue Party, was held by im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cials upon land­ing at the Kuala Lumpur air­port Wednes­day night from Jakarta. Her de­ten­tion fol­lowed the ar­rest of two party youth ac­tivists in Malaysia late Mon­day.
