The kids had their clothes on!!!

Cambodian authorities have accused 10 foreigners of violating the country's anti-pornography laws, after police raided a party in Siem Reap, close to the famous ruins of Angkor Wat.

The group, which includes at least five UK nationals, as well as two Canadians, a Norwegian and a New Zealander, is accused of "preparing pornographic materials," a charge which could see them face up to a year in jail if found guilty.

Cambodian authorities have distributed photos which they allege show the group simulating various sexual positions.

A spokesman for the Cambodian Interior Ministry, Khieu Sopheak, denied the arrest was part of a nationwide crackdown.

President of Cambodia Law Services, Sam Onn Kong, told CNN he didn't believe what the backpackers were alleged to have done was actually illegal under Cambodian law. "It's not illegal to pretend to have sex with your clothes on, (but) it depends on other relevant factors like your intention and outcome," he said. "I don't think the pictures constitute pornography."
