PHNOM PENH -- The European Union is set to withdraw trade privileges on some Cambodian exports after a yearlong review of the Southeast Asian nation's widely-condemned human rights record, according to a document uploaded to the European Parliament's website.

An official announcement on whether Cambodia will retain its duty-free access to the bloc under the Everything But Arms scheme for least developed countries is due on Wednesday.
