Airport Bust Nets Two Suspected Drug Smugglers

Cambodian authorities Friday arrested two Malaysian nationals carrying bags of heroin strapped to their thighs.

"This time, it is not very much," Chhouk Kim Ny, chief of airport police said. "Previously, each person would carry nearly 2 kilograms. This time each person carried only 1 kilogram on both thighs."

The arrests follow a similar bust in February, when a Taiwanese man was arrested with 265 grams of heroine stashed in condom and a large bust during Sunday's elections that brought in 18 suspects and 3 tons of drugs and drug-making material.
