A Taiwanese businessman was abducted in Phnom Penh, Cambodia last week by several attackers who have since been arrested.
The victim, 58-year-old Hung Chung-chuo, was suddenly assaulted, forced into a car, and held against his will while in the Cambodian capital on business.
Hung was abducted on June 18 and was released after paying the men US$20,000. According to reports, the attackers initially demanded US$100,000 from Hung and threatened to kill him and discard his body in a river if he did not pay, reports Khmer Times.
