Cambodia, citing visa irregularities, expels 16 North Korean programmers

Men reported to have been working for Chinese online gambling operation

16 North Korean computer programmers were last week found to have been working in Cambodia illegally and have been ordered to leave the country, according to local authorities.

In a move which comes just a few weeks after UN sanctions required member states to deport all DPRK citizens working in their territory, Cambodia's General Department of Immigration (GDI) said the men had been working as "online software installation technicians" in the northwestern city of Siem Reap.
