Two Canadians are among 10 foreigners charged in Cambodia with producing pornographic pictures, after they were arrested at a party where they were dancing and rolling around on the floor with clothes on.

Cambodian police released images online that appeared to show clothed and laughing tourists imitating s3xual positions.

Police said of the 87 foreigners at the pool party, 77 were "educated and let go".

Samreth Sokhon, the court's deputy prosecutor, said on Sunday they were "charged with pornography", but declined to comment any further.

Those arrested included five Britons: Vincent Harley Robert Hook, 35, Daniel Richard Leeming Jones, 30, Thomas Alexander Jeffries, 22, Billy Stevens, 21, and Paul Francis Harris, 32, alongside two Canadian women, Eden Koazoleas, 19, and Jessica Drolet, 26.

One of the prisoners said they saw one men taken by police vomit in shock.

Police said Sunday Jan. 28, 2018, they raided a rented villa on Thursday and found people "dancing pornographically", and while nearly 90 foreigners were detained, all but 10 were released. However, the individuals appear to be different from those arrested and the photos were taken at night, though the crackdown occurred during daylight hours.
