Hard to see why man left would-be arsonist

It’s one thing to get upset at your in-laws, but threatening to firebomb their house is quite another.

But that’s what a 35-year-old woman did in Penh‘s Russey Keo district yesterday morning after her husband moved out with the children to stay with his sister.

Beside herself with rage, the abandoned partner, whose husband claims she’s a drunk, tried to pour petrol over her sister-in-law’s house, but was stopped by neighbours.

She has been detained by police as her husband seeks a divorce.
