Demonstrators march on US embassy
Chinese living in Cambodia protest against Nato actions
Police in Cambodia have fired warning shots to prevent hundreds of ethnic Chinese demonstrators from reaching the United States embassy in Phnom Penh.
Shots were fired after the demonstrators broke through the first of two security cordons set up around the compound. There are no reports of injuries.
The crowds, some wearing white t-shirts with the American flag superimposed with a swastika, carried banners daubed with anti-US slogans and shouted "Kill Americans."
Cambodia condemns bombing
The Cambodian prime minister, Hun Sen, has condemned the bombing and appealed for an end to Nato's air campaign against Yugoslavia.
"We don't want to see this kind of problem happening in poor Cambodia. We don't want to damage relations between Cambodia and foreign countries," said Interior Ministry spokesman Khieu Sopheak.
The Chamber of Commerce took out a half-page advertisement in the English-language newspaper, the Cambodia Daily, strongly protesting against "Nato's atrocity".
The embassy bombing last Friday, which killed three Chinese journalists and wounded 20 others, sparked off four days of state-approved protests in China.
