Workers in Cambodia have continued rioting following a shooting at a Puma supplier factory last week where three people were injured.

Workers blocked roads and threw stones that shattered windows of the Medtecs (Cambodia) factory on Friday (24 February), the Phnom Penh Post reported. The company, which is based in the Kampong Siem district, produces textiles for the hospitality industry.

The newspaper reported that workers stopped throwing stones after around 90 minutes when the company agreed to open negotiations with worker representatives.

The dispute follows a shooting at a Puma supplier factory in Svay Rieng province's Bavet town.

The report said that police were told by their superiors not to use arms and sticks to endanger workers like in Bavet town.
