Unwanted attention hits peak for tourist group

Two suspected pickpockets were arrested at the Siem Reap night market on Saturday after the shrieks of unsuspecting tourists came to the attention of nearby police officers.

According to authorities, members of the group trailed the tourists into a crowd, but as they made their move, the victims cried out for help, and police arrested two people, aged 21 and 24.

They were sent to court and police are looking for their accomplices. KOH SANTEPHEAP
