An Icelander in his forties, Ingólfur Steinar Ingólfsson, has been arrested in Cambodia according to Kambódískir fjölmiðlar (CNE). Cambodian media published a picture of Ingólfur along with a police officer. According to the news, he lost his passport there in May, but despite receiving assistance from the Icelandic Embassy, he did not request a visa and was therefore illegal in the country.
