Cambodian Police Arrest Dozens of Chinese for Kidnapping Other Chinese

Authorities in Cambodia on Sunday arrested five Chinese nationals who kidnapped two other Chinese nationals in a ransom plot where they demanded U.S. $100,000 from their families, the latest of several similar recent cases in which the suspects and victims were Chinese.

The arrest was made after the local police received a complaint from a Chinese man, who said the two victims were being held at the Imperial Hotel in Chaktomuk commune in the capital Phnom Penh, the National Police website reported Tuesday.

The two victims were rescued and the five suspects will be tried at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, the police report said.
