Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here.

There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

From the New York Times article:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The Latest on exiled Cambodian opposition leader Sam Rainsy's effort to return to his home country (all times local):

6:55 p.m.

Cambodia's government claims to have reversed its ban on allowing the return of exiled opposition leader Sam Rainsy, with a top officials saying after he arrived back in Southeast Asia that he can return as an ordinary person but will have to face due justice. Sam Rainsy has several convictions with prison sentences along with charges on several offense pending.

Sar Kheng, interior minister and deputy prime minister, announced the shift on his Facebook page on Saturday. It came shortly after Sam Rainsy arrived by air in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, with virtually no chance of meeting his self-imposed deadline of returning to Cambodia by Saturday.

Sar Kheng, calling Sam Rainsy a culprit and a convict, said "As of now, there is not any announcement by the Cambodian government to bar culprit Sam Rainsy and his colleagues from entering the country."

Smart move of the Cambodian government. Now that Rainman is in Kuala Lumpur 'proving' that he is 'determined' to get to Cambodia after he was earlier 'banned' from boarding a flight to Bangkok, Cambodia even invites him back. I guess they're betting on the coward Rainsy to find a reason not to go to Cambodia, politically eliminating the clown once and for all.

Close enough ?
Earlier on Saturday, party vice president Mu Sochua cast doubt on whether Rainsy would be able to enter Cambodia.

“We want to be in Cambodia,” Sochua said, but “all routes to Cambodia for us are closed.”

Instead, Rainsy was “moving as close as possible” to the country, even though “physically we cannot cross the border,” she said.

My guess: it wont be long and he will be in Cambodia.

At the risk of repeating myself: There is more to this than we are being told. Expect some surprises.
