Asian Restaurant Owners Say They're Being Unfairly Targeted

Owners of dozens of Asian restaurants in Las Vegas claim they are being unfairly targeted by the Southern Nevada Health District.

On Tuesday, more than 50 restaurant owners and the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce met with several Clark County officials to discuss those claims.

KLAS-TV Channel 8 reports their concerns range from inconsistent inspection standards to inspectors lacking cultural sensitivity.
