United Nations (United States) (AFP) - Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen warned Friday against any questioning of the legitimacy of his controversial reelection after a top UN official doubted whether the polls could be regarded as democratic.

Hun Sen, who has been in power for more than 33 years, saw his Cambodian People's Party win all 125 seats in July's parliamentary elections after a shuttering of media outlets and jailing of political opponents and journalists.
