Cambodian children play near a pipe pumping out sand to fill Boeung Kak Lake in Phnom Penh. Thousands of families living near the lake, which is currently half-filled with sand, are facing eviction after the government in 2007 awarded the land to a local real estate developer, Shukaku Inc., for private development. Residents demanded $15,000 to $20,000 in compensation to move out, but the government would only agree to about $8,500 per family. The firm has been filling in the lake with sand, causing frequent floods at the residents' homes.
