Eden Kazoleas, 19, of Alberta and Jessica Drolet, 26, of Ontario, spoke briefly to reporters at Toronto's Pearson airport Friday night, after a court in Cambodia allowed their release.

The women were among seven foreigners freed after being arrested last month for allegedly posting photos on social media of themselves engaged in sexually suggestive dancing.

A Toronto lawyer who has been involved with the case says they were jailed for more than a week and kept in a cell with more than 45 other women.

Yazidi boy gets short meeting with Trudeau

  Yazidi boy gets short meeting with Trudeau WINNIPEG - A Yazidi boy who was held captive for three years by Iraqi militants got his wish to meet with Justin Trudeau, simply by showing up to the prime minister's town hall meeting in Winnipeg. Thirteen-year-old Emad Mishko Tamo made a video appeal to Trudeau that was posted to social media by the Yazidi Association of Manitoba last month. But a spokesman for the group says they never heard back from Trudeau, and decided to try to see him at the forum at the University of Manitoba on Wednesday.Hadji Hesso says when Emad arrived at the venue with his uncle, political staffers approached him and brought him to a dressing room, where he met Trudeau for about five minutes.

In a brief news conference at the airport, Kazoleas thanked Cambodian authorities for their "understanding" throughout the ordeal.

She said she was not aware that attending what she called a "pool party" would be offensive to Cambodian culture, and she apologized to "anyone who feels that it was."

However, she insisted she did not take part in any "pornographic dancing, or anything that the media suggests I was doing.

"I'm very disappointed in the way I was portrayed," she said.

Drolet also thanked the Cambodian authorities and said she didn't mean to offend anyone by attending the party on Jan. 25 in Siem Reap.

"I'm saddened by the media's misrepresentation of my actions at this party," said Drolet.

Kazoleas and Drolet were arrested — along with nationals from the United Kingdom, Norway, the Netherlands and New Zealand — when police raided the commercially organized party at a rented villa.

Police originally detained almost 90 people, but only 10 were held in custody.

Of those, only three remained in detention as of Friday. A court spokesman in Cambodia said he didn't know their names or nationalities.
