Angkor Wat sellers and beggars face ban

TOURISM authorities plan to ban beggars and vendors from the most popular

temples at the Angkor site near Siem Reap, according to the Cambodia

Daily.

It reports Kuosuom Sar-oeuth, managing director of Angkor Tourism,

as saying about 200 beggars and drink sellers - mostly children- often harassed

tourists as they walked through the temples, and banning them "could make

tourists feel good when they are in our temples".

The paper said a

foreign tourist was beaten with a crutch earlier this year by an amputee who

asked for money but was ignored, according to local police.
