Big day of booze ends in brutal machete attack

Whether in reality TV shows or Kampong Chhnang, rice wine and arguments just don’t go well together.

After a group of villagers in the province’s Boribor district imbibed a mammoth 4 litres of the stuff, a 58-year-old man was punched by another villager, 31.

The older man stomped off, only to return with a machete and hack his erstwhile attacker in the head. The victim was hospitalised while his attacker was arrested later that day. NOKORWAT
