Cambodia to deport 16 N. Koreans accused of working illegally

Cambodian authorities detained and then ordered 16 North Korean men to be deported after accusing them of working in the country illegally, a police official said late Saturday.

Tith Narong, chief of the Siem Reap provincial police, told Kyodo News that the North Koreans, who were detained on Friday afternoon, must leave Cambodia within seven days after they were fined $100 each for “working without a work permit.”

He said the men arrived in Cambodia about three months ago, entering the Southeast Asian nation on tourist visas.
