PHNOM PENH -- About 15 km north of the center of Cambodian capital Phnom Penh a huge stadium is under construction in a sparsely-populated area punctuated with vacant lots. Attempts to photograph construction workers -- who look like they could be Chinese -- are shut down by a security guard, who says it is the prime minister's project and warns of potential arrest.
