Aussie diplomat sorry for Cambodian turtle soup meal

Australia’s ambassador to Cambodia has apologised for eating a dish containing softshell turtle, which are highly protected in parts of the world.

Ambassador Pablo Kang shared an image earlier this month of a bowl containing cooked turtle his party consumed during a visit to rural Pailin, but deleted the tweet after drawing criticism online.

“I have removed my tweet about softshell turtles and eels, and apologise to all those who took offence,” Kang tweeted on Tuesday.
