A Cambodian child lies on a decaying foam mattress in the Dey Krahorm community, which was the target of a violent eviction in 2009, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, December 28, 2007. Situated on approximately 4 hectares of land in the heart of the city, Dey Krahorm has an estimated value of $44 to $58 million. In 2005, 7NG company, which has ties to Canadia Bank, obtained an illegal agreement to develop Dey Krahorm. Since that time, 7NG has moved forward with a policy of trying to force out residents through means of intimidation, coercion, deceit and physical violence resulting in the destruction of housing and property.
