US SISTERS ARRESTED FOR NUDE PHOTO AT CAMBODIA’S ANGKOR

Labels: ,
PHNOM PENH - Two American sisters have been arrested in Cambodia for taking naked photos of each other inside the country’s famed Angkor temple complex, officials said Saturday – the latest nude stunt by tourists to spark anger. 
Lindsey Adams, 22, and her 20-year-old sister Leslie were discovered taking “nude pictures” inside the Preah Khan temple at the world heritage site on Friday, the Apsara Authority – the government agency managing the Angkor complex – said in a statement. 
The two tourists admitted that they really made a mistake by taking nude photos, the statement read. 
It is the second time in the last fortnight that tourists visiting the sprawling temple complex have been caught without their clothes.  
Three French tourists were deported last weekend after they pleaded guilty to taking nude pictures of each other inside another temple within the complex.
Chau Sun Kerya, a spokeswoman for the Apsara Authority, said the women’s actions were offensive because Angkor is considered sacred ground.
“Perhaps they did not know Angkor is a holy site. But their inappropriate activities affect the sanctity of the place,” she told AFP.
Keat Bunthan, a senior heritage police official in northwestern Siem Reap province, said officers were now questioning the women.
“They lowered their pants to their knees and took pictures of their buttocks,” he said.
The three deported French men received a suspended six-month prison sentence on two charges – public exposure and making pornography – and will be banned from re-entering Cambodia for four years.
The trio were caught just days after a series of photos of Asian women posing nude at ancient Cambodian temples went viral online and outraged officials who vowed to step up efforts to prevent similar stunts.
