Cambodian PM rallies support for vote that his foes call a sham


PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of supporters of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen rallied in Phnom Penh on the last day of campaigning for Sunday's general election, in which he faces almost no challenge to extending 33 years in power.

The election will be Cambodia's sixth since it emerged from decades of war in 1993 and critics of Hun Sen brand the vote a sham after the elimination of the main opposition party and a crackdown on independent media and dissent.
