Cops cocksure bust will depress district’s crime

The root of all evil is … cockfighting, at least according to police in Kandal’s Muk Kampoul district. In taking down an illegal fighting ring on Sunday, and arresting its 26-year-old host, police explained that the fights had a ripple effect in the community, with some residents trying to cover their gambling losses by robbing and stealing.

The suspect, who confessed to taking part in the blood sport for several months, was sent to court along with four seized cocks. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
