American tourist, ANDRES PINO, Arrested for ATM Attack

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I'd imagine encountering some MS13 hombres with or without a 13 tattoo might be tricky.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

I think just meeting some MS13 killers would be a bigger problem than having a 13 tatted, as it's used by many other areas of pop culture.

Not only tattoos. Mara Salvatrucha 13 members wear Nike Cortez. Rival gang Calle 18 members wear Adidas Concha (Adidas Superstar in other parts of the world). So wearing the 'wrong' sneakers in the 'wrong' part of town can get you in serious trouble.
