PHNOM PENH (AFP) - A Cambodian school director has been arrested for trafficking teenage students to have sex with foreign donors, police said Tuesday, in a case described as a "wake-up call" for the authorities.

Waha Long, the 32-year-old founder of the Underprivileged Children School in the northwestern tourist hub of Siem Reap, could face up to five years in jail if convicted of child sex charges.

"He made teenagers staying at his home give sex to foreigners who donated funds to him," provincial anti-human trafficking police chief Duong Thavary told AFP.

The suspect allegedly provided at least four boys, in pairs, to have sex with donors, she said.
