Bookworm shot in the leg for her troubles

Unlike many of her classmates, the victim of Battambang’s latest shooting was heading home to hit the books on Friday.

She was riding her moto when a man held her up with a gun. Brave or crazy, who knows? But the student declined the invitation to stop, careering away at speed.

The robber shot her once in the leg and hopped on the bike when she fell, leaving her in the road. The shooter remains at large. Koh Santepheap
