In Brief: American faces child sex questions


41-year-old American man was questioned Thursday by an investigating

judge at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on suspicion of purchasing

child sex. Bith Kimhong, the director of the Ministry of Interior's

Anti-human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Department, said the man

was arrested February 24 in Siem Reap. Bith Kimhong said the man was

being investigated for paying two boys - aged 13 and 14 - for sex in

Phnom Penh and was currently being held at Prey Sar prison in the

capital. The suspect's lawyer denied the charge.
