Eight Chinese sentenced to death for Cambodian crimes

A court in China has condemned eight Chinese to death for a series of kidnappings and robberies in Cambodia in which at least 10 people were killed.

State media says the eight, sentenced in a court in eastern Nanjing city, were part of a 28-member gang that committed 12 robberies in Cambodia between 1999 and 2004.

The robberies resulted in the deaths of seven people, including South Koreans.

The Chinese were also reportedly convicted of four kidnappings in which three people held for ransom were killed.
