Boy loses new moto to sword-waving thieves

A Phnom Penh schoolboy was reduced to tears on Wednesday, and with good reason: his motorbike was stolen by samurai sword-wielding thieves.

According to police, the 16-year-old was riding his motorbike in Chbar Ampov district at lunchtime when two men approached, one waving the sword.

He stopped the bike and, no doubt quivering with fear, gave it to them. Police found him crying by the side of the road. The bike was a gift from his mother. The thieves remain at large. DEUM AMPIL
