Jilted husband sets himself on fire

A JILTED husband set fire to himself in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Saturday after asking his wife to reconsider their relationship. Kim Loan, 32, doused himself with a litre of petrol and set himself alight after an attempt to rebuild his marriage failed, said district police chief Hout Chanyaran yesterday. The husband is now recovering from his injuries in hospital.
