An American who has been a frequent visitor to Nepal has been arrested in the capital's tourist district on charges of sexually abusing children. The Central Bureau of Investigations said in a statement Monday that Kenneth Joseph Coombs and a local man arrested with him were being held for further investigation. Five boys were rescued after police raided Coombs's hotel room in Kathmandu over the weekend. The raid was initiated after police got information from boys who had been abused there.
