PHNOM PENH: Two Cambodian journalists who had worked for US-funded Radio Free Asia and are charged with espionage were released on bail after a pardon freed four land rights activists from prison.

Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin, who is better known by his professional name of Yeang Socheameta, were arrested last November and charged with undermining national security by supplying information to a foreign state.
