Armed burglars swipe ‘huge amount of gold’

The owner of a jewellery store in Ratanakkiri province is recovering from a head wound after armed burglars robbed him in broad daylight on Wednesday, police said.

The five men, armed with pistols and AK-47 rifles, swept into Long Samnang’s Banlung commune shop and made off with a “huge amount of gold”, police said, although a figure was not disclosed.

Upon entering the store, one robber hit Long Samnang over the head with an axe handle.

During the crime, the robbers pointed their guns at him and fired two warning shots in the air.
