Gaming stores raided

AUTHORITIES in Phnom Penh have cracked down on at least 22 videogame stores in the capital and confiscated more than 200 games this month, following complaints from parents that videogames were distracting their children from school, officials said.

Y Sokleng, the deputy governor of Prampi Makara district, said that 12 stores in his district had been raided, while Saing Sopeakvichith, the deputy governor of Tuol Kork district, said more than 40 students there had been briefly apprehended, “re-educated” and released as part of the crackdown.
