Firebug’s incendiary plan comes to naught

A quarrelsome, would-be arsonist looking for a fight picked on his neighbour in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district on Monday.

Finding heated words not enough to suffice, the 18-year-old suspect returned with a samurai sword, a lighter and a half-litre of petrol.

The teen shouted for the neighbour to re-emerge from his house and prepared to set it alight. But other residents spotted the firebug before the flames could start and intervened. NOKORWAT
