Big brands pressure Cambodia to probe shootings at worker protest

Retail giants Puma, Gap and H&M have urged Cambodia to fully probe the recent shooting and wounding of protesting garment workers as the sole suspect, a local governor, remained at large on Monday. The international buyers voiced "deep concern" over the 20 Feb. incident in which a gunman opened fire at a rally by thousands of workers demanding better working conditions at factories in eastern Svay Rieng province.
