Meanchey’s Anlong Veng district are searching for a soldier suspected killing a villager who was transporting wood to build his house, a district police official said Sunday. The soldier, 53, stopped the victim’s truck and demanded a payment of 20,000 riels (US$5) on Saturday, Anlong Veng district police Chief Nguon Rithy said, and when the man refused, the soldier shot him three times in the stomach. Nguon Rithy added that the soldier is likely hiding in the forest. “I think we will be able to catch the man when he is out of food.”
