Romanians, Nigerians arrested in Cambodian drug bust

Cambodian police said Thursday they have arrested two Romanians and three Nigerians after seizing nearly 5 kilograms (11 pounds) of methamphetamine from one of them as he prepared to board a flight to Hong Kong.

Deputy National Police Chief Mok Chito said police on Wednesday found the drug in four plastic packets in luggage belonging to Romanian Narcis-Manuel Olaru at the airport in Siem Reap in northeastern Cambodia. It is a major international gateway for tourists because it is home to the famous Angkor Wat temple complex.
