A Cambodian woman sits at her family's home (and business), which will be torn down to make way for a 133-hectare commercial housing and development project in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Sept 11, 2010. More than 4,000 families will be evicted from their homes as part of the 133-hectare Boeung Kak Lake development project which is being carried out by Shukaku Inc. In 2007 authorities awarded a 133-hectare swathe around Boeung Kak lake to Shukaku Inc, which is headed by Cambodian People's Party Senator Lao Meng Khin. Housing rights advocates say the villagers have a right to claim ownership of the land, on which many have lived for decades.
