Cambodia's Hun Sen set for re-election after 33 years in power

For the past 33 years, Prime Minister Hun Sen has ruled Cambodia with an iron fist. He now looks set for re-election in a general election on Sunday. Freedom of speech is under threat in Cambodia, with Hun Sen accused of being behind the closure of independent media outlets and the dissolving of the main opposition party. Few Cambodians dare to speak out. Our regional correspondent Clovis Casali reports from Phnom Penh.
