AN Australian man has been found dead in his Cambodian jail cell, according to a report by wire agency DPA.

Bart Lauwaert, a former teacher, was serving a 20-year sentence in a Siem Reap prison for child sex offences. His last avenue of appeal was closed last month.

A prison official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told DPA Lauwaert had not been on suicide watch and no formal cause of death had been established, although heart failure had not been ruled out.
