Beggar ban

Siem Reap governor Chap Nhalyvoud is pursuing plans to tidy up the Angkor temples

by evicting beggars and putting them in a camp, according to AFP. The beggars, dominated

by former Khmer Rouge soldiers, many missing limbs, are said by AFP to number in

the thousands. "We need to concentrate them into a controlled place or camp,

send some back to the province they came from or ask the local NGOs to provide them

with a place to say," Nhalyvoud said.
