Nine men sent to court following gang murder

Nine gangsters accused of taking part in a fight in Phnom Penh that left a 33-year-old man dead will be charged in court.

Nine gangsters accused of taking part in a fight in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district that left a 33-year-old man dead will be charged in court today.

On Saturday, two rival gangs had been dancing at the village’s annual harvest festival when an argument broke out, Kantauk commune chief Yorng Sithol said.

The group left the party to settle their differences and began brawling 20 metres from the compound.

The victim, San Ratha, walked out of his house to investigate the commotion but was caught up in the melee and stabbed to death, Sithol said.
