French tourists in nude Cambodia photo scandal to be deported

Three French tourists will be deported from Cambodia after they pleaded guilty to taking nude pictures of each other inside the country's famed Angkor temple complex, a prosecutor said Saturday. The male tourists were arrested on Thursday after they were discovered taking naked photos inside the Banteay Kdei temple at the world heritage site in northwestern Siem Reap province. The three men, who are all in their early twenties, received a suspended six-month prison sentence and will be banned from re-entering Cambodia for four years. "They confessed to making a mistake and asked for the Cambodian people to forgive them for their actions," prosecutor Koeut Sovannareth told AFP. The arrests caused deep anger among Cambodian officials, who said taking nude photos at such a sacred site was deeply offensive. "They will be deported from Cambodia very soon," Sovannareth
