Brotherly love lacking in act of alleged arson

A Banteay Meanchey man burned more than a bridge on Saturday when he drunkenly set alight his brother’s home, the same home where he’d been living, police said.

The 28-year-old returned to Cambodia last month after working in Thailand. According to police, he drank more than his fill and, in a rage, set fire to the house.

When authorities arrived, he allegedly chased them with a machete. He confessed after his arrest, insisting he was too drunk to control himself. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
