In Brief: Police crack down on illegal casinos

Phnom Penh police say they launched a fresh series of raids on illegal casinos in the city. A law passed at the end of last year requires slot machines be housed only in hotels. But municipal police Chief Touch Naruth said some establishments were attempting to skirt the law by fronting as hotels despite not offering rooms. The directive also banned Cambodians from using casinos, which the government says is a social ill.
