Not again! Another pair of tourists caught taking nude photos at Angkor

I don’t know if this is some kind of new trend, or just another act of gross stupidity. A pair of tourists, American this time, were caught taking nude photos at Preah Khan. Like the previous French tourists, they were fined, deported and given suspended sentences. Perhaps it is time to give such tourists mandatory jail time?

Two American sisters have been arrested in Cambodia for taking naked photos of each other inside the country’s famed Angkor temple complex in the latest nude stunt by tourists to spark anger, officials say.

Lindsey Adams, 22, and her 20-year-old sister Leslie were discovered taking “nude pictures” inside the Preah Khan temple at the world heritage site on Friday, the Apsara Authority – the government agency managing the Angkor complex – said in a statement.
