With the Cambodian election campaigns now in full swing ruling party CPP leader prime minister Hun Sen makes a highly guarded visit to Siem Reap to attend various meetings. Hun Sen is the second longest serving leader in Southeast Asia and is one of the longest serving prime ministers in the world, having been in power through various coalitions since 1985. In 1987, Amnesty International accused Hun Sen's government of torture of thousands of political prisoners using "electric shocks, hot irons and near-suffocation with plastic bags. Hun Sen's government has been responsible for the sale of vast amounts of land to foreign investors resulting in the forced eviction of thousands upon thousands of residents from their homes throughout the country.

After a protest of a few hundred people in Al-Nuzha Circle in Hussein Camp — an area that was originally a Palestinian refugee camp — the unrest moved up to Al-Nuzha Police Station on Jordan Street at about 10:30 p.m. on November 16, where rocks were launched at the building and the people in front of it, including regime loyalists who were in cars in front of the police station, by around 200 people from different surrounding areas. Police retaliated by firing warning shots with live ammunition. Riot police showed up minutes later with two vehicles to shore up the area, before going into the protest at the end of the street to disperse the crowd with tear gas.
