Cambodia's opposition has begun a three-day rally in the capital to demand an independent probe into the July election results.

More than 1,000 security forces are on duty for Wednesday's protest. Authorities have said they will allow the rally as long as there are no more than 10,000 protesters and nobody camps at the protest site overnight.

The official election results extended Prime Minister Hun Sen's 28-year rule and his party secured 68 seats in parliament compared to 55 for the opposition. The opposition says it was cheated out of victory.

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy says a boycott of parliament will continue until the government meets the opposition's demands.
