A pair of activist brothers who met with prominent political analyst Kem Ley two days before he was gunned down flew to Thailand on Thursday in apparent fear for their safety.

Chum Huor and Chum Huot met with Kem Ley last Saturday at the convenience store where he was killed on Sunday, and they claim to have seen people spying on them. They posted a photograph of themselves to their shared Facebook page on Thursday showing them seated on a Bangkok Airways flight, passports in hand.

“Just the pair of clothes we’re wearing,” they wrote in a message attached to the photo. “We are forced to leave with shocked emotions. Bye Cambodia.”

The night before, the brothers also posted a photo of themselves, apparently in hiding.

“We [are] not safe now and stay somewhere,” they wrote.
