Cambodia's opposition on Wednesday threatened a nationwide strike to protest at strongman premier Hun Sen's disputed return to power, as a UN envoy warned the nation was at a crossroads.
Sam Rainsy, whose opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) is boycotting parliament, said the country had returned to a one-party system through a "constitutional coup".
"So the whole country -- for one day we call for a strike at all factories. All civil servants, all shopkeepers will stop working on that day. This is one possible idea," Rainsy said at a news conference.
