Blissful boogie turns pagoda war dance

What had originally been a celebratory dance for the Pchum Ben festival turned into a brawl when two groups of people came to blows in a pagoda in Kampong Cham province on Wednesday.

The men were making merry when their self-defined territories supposedly overlapped, sparking a skirmish between the two parties.

One man was injured and sent to the hospital. Nine others were sent to court.
