Coffee vendor survives brutal drive-by slashing

All signs point to revenge, police say, in yet another seemingly random attack with edged weapons in the capital.

The victim, a 17-year-old coffee vendor, was a passenger on a friend’s moto when seven assailants astride four motorbikes came alongside and began to hack at him with swords and cleavers.

The duo managed to stay upright until police intervened and saved them. The injured teen is now in hospital and police are looking for the suspects. NOKORWAT
