Local residents have begun to protest to the provincial government, but the orders to vacate and the threat of demolition have been made for several months now.

The Apsara Authority and Siem Reap provincial officials have demolished 49 homes out of 520 slated for removal within the Angkor Archaeological Park since Thursday, officials said yesterday.
