Two American sisters were arrested in Cambodia for taking nude photos inside the country’s sacred Angkor Wat temple.
Prescott, Arizona resident, Lindsey Adams, 22, and her 20-year-old sister, Leslie Adams, were caught taking the naked photos inside the holy temple on Friday. The Adams siblings were charged with indecent trafficking pornography and exposing sexual organs, fined $250 each, given six-month suspended jail sentences, and deported to Thailand.
“Perhaps they did not know Angkor is a holy site. But their inappropriate activities affect the sanctity of the place,” Apsara Authority spokeswoman Chau Sun Kerya said. “The two tourists admitted that they really made a mistake by taking nude photos.”
The incident comes just days after three French men were sentenced for taking nude photos at another temple inside the complex.
The Adams sisters have been banned from reentering Cambodia for four years.
