PHNOM PENH - Police in Kampong Cham province arrested five individuals late Wednesday, following an apparent bank robbery that turned into an enacted hostage situation, officials said.

Police originally responded to an apparent hostage crisis, telling reporters that two drug users had seized employees of at an Acleda bank. At least 50 anti-terrorism police were dispatched to surround the bank, and police said earlier they had provided a small pouch of methamphetamines to meet the demands of the so-called hostage takers.

In the end, however, police said that five individuals found inside the bank and subsequently arrested were working in cooperation with each other. A suspected bank employee, also arrested at the site, was named as the “ringleader” by police.

Details are unclear as to the motives of the group, though police said it appeared they wanted to rob the bank. A bank official said no money is missing.

The suspects remained in police custody under questioning late Monday.

Former Khmer Rouge Head of State in Court for Genocide Hearingi
X
30 July 2014
Cambodia's former Khmer Rouge president, Khieu Samphan, arrived in court on Wednesday (July 30) for an initial hearing on charges for genocide, crimes against humanity, and grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions. Khieu Samphan was at the apex of power within the Khmer Rouge, a regime responsible for the deaths of around 1.7 million Cambodians during their time in power from 1975-79. The former official, along with regime head Pol Pot's deputy, Nuon Chea, is already on trial for crimes against humanity associated with the forced evacuation of the capital Phnom Penh and the executions of soldiers. This second round of hearings centres around a far broader list of charges, and will likely have a greater significance for many survivors of the regime. (Reuters, Phnom Penh.)
