Two Drunk Brits Arrested & Released After They Sign Grovelling Apology Letters to Cambodia

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.

Jesus, they are lucky they did not get shot.
That's a good point.

Ten years ago, I stopped out front of the US embassy. I pulled out my camera to take a picture of the small concrete placard thing that's erected out on the sidewalk.

I'd only gotten about 1 photo when 3 armed, uniformed Cambodian dudes were suddenly standing next to me. Wondering just what in the hell I was doing.

One of these Brits was able to scale the Turkish embassy walls and actually get over onto the grounds?!?
I guess the Turks are a little lax. Wonder what would happen if someone pulled that stunt at, let's say, the Israeli Embassy?

The Embassy doesn't have very high walls.

I'm pretty sure the Turkish embassy has a security booth at the gate. How did no one stop them climbing in?

Fame at last: their story has made the British tabloids.

Sheepish British tourists are forced by police to write letters of apology and promise not to cause trouble after passing out drunk in Cambodia

I would say that a child of 7 had written those letters looking at how bad the hand writing is but that would insult the child.

I wonder where they went to school? (WP perhaps...joke between neighbours)

27 and 40 and they look the same age, I could barely determine the elder.
