Cambodia braces for showdown with EU over opposition icon

Garment industry stands to lose access to biggest market if Sam Rainsy is arrested

HANOI -- Cambodia's main opposition leader is expected to return from self-imposed exile in about a week, setting up a potential showdown between Prime Minister Hun Sen's government and the European Union that could deal a serious blow to the country's garment industry.

Sam Rainsy, the former head of the now defunct Cambodia National Rescue Party, is set to return to Cambodia from France on Nov. 9, Cambodia's Independence Day.
