Drunken ‘friends’ give relationship the axe

A friendly drinking session got ugly fast in Kampong Chhnang town on Sunday when things quickly escalated past mere harsh words.

Police said four men were boozing happily until an argument emerged that half the group felt could be more easily settled with an axe.

Moments after sinking the axe into their former mates’ backs, the two assailants attempted to flee, only to be stopped by local villagers, who held them for police.

The two victims are now recovering in hospital. DEUM AMPIL
