Angelina Jolie, the star of Simon Wests action adventure movie Tomb Raider, wil be flanked by three bodyguards during her filming in Angkor Wat, which begins in November. An application has been made to Cambodian officials requesting permission that firearms be carried by bodyguards following a recent ban by the Ministry of Culture on the actual firing of weapons. Cambodian official Khieu Khanarith says, "This is the first time we've had a request like this. We believe it's only a problem of procedure. After all prime ministers visit with armed bodyguards."

Earlier this week, Som Sokun, Director of Cinema for Cambodia says "We want to show Cambodia's heritage to the world, the beauty of our temples - not violence." and has allowed weapons on set with the condition that no rounds are fired.
