Cambodian police have arrested two Taiwanese caught while allegedly trying to smuggle 2.1kg of heroin out of the kingdom, police in Phnom Penh said yesterday. Yeh Chuan-hsueh, 48, and Chitsung Lieh, 58, were arrested on Sunday as they were about to board a flight to Hong Kong, airport police chief Chhuor Kimny said. Police found 1.4kg of heroin in Yeh's shoes and strapped to his thighs, while the other man had 0.7kg of the drug in his shoes, the policeman said. The two men passed through X-ray machines undetected, but were caught because of new measures requiring security staff to check every Taiwanese person passing through the airport. "We are focusing on Taiwanese nationals the most. Whether or not the X-ray machines sound the alarm, our police search them directly," Chhuor Kimny said.
