Cambodia court grants bail to seven foreigners held over dance party


PHNOM PENH A Cambodian court has granted bail to seven of 10 foreigners charged with producing pornography related to dancing at a party, a court spokesman said on Thursday.
The 10 were arrested on Jan. 25, along with 77 other foreigners, in a raid on event called the"Pub Crawl or Let's Get Wet"in Siem Reap province, home to the ancient Angkor Wat ruins.
Yin Srang, a spokesman for the Siem Reap provincial court, told Reuters seven of the detainees were granted bail on Wednesday and were released from detention.
"They may not leave the country because their passports were taken away,"Yin Srang said. He could not provide further details, or specify the nationalities of those granted bail.
