NIGERIANS ACCUSED OF DRUG SMUGGLING  

At least 17 Nigerians were arrested Wednesday in Phnom Penh's Dangkor district for alleged drug smuggling. Three men, who are believed to be in charge, were arrested with nearly a kilogram of heroin they were going to smuggle overseas via Phnom Penh International Airport, according to Dangkor district police Chief Born Sam Ath. A concerned woman tipped off the police, saying she was suspicious that the three men were carrying very heavy suitcases. Police stopped the tuk-tuk carrying the three, who are believed to be the masterminds of a massive drug-trafficking ring of Africans in Phnom Penh. The heroin was concealed inside giant buttons on the clothes the men were wearing. Another 14 men were detained for questioning. According to the confessions, the men have been running drugs out of Cambodia through the International Airport for some time.
