Bag gets unsuspecting tourist out of tight bind

Is nothing sacred? Apparently not, after two pagoda workers were arrested for reportedly attempting to steal a bag from a tourist in Siem Reap town on Sunday.

According to police, a Chinese tourist was biking to see the sunrise at Angkor when the two men, who were riding a motorbike, snatched the bag in her bike’s basket.

Turns out, the bag was tied to the bike, preventing the men from stealing it. The woman screamed for help and police and villagers chased the men. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
