Homeric hack-a-thon over Helen of Daun Penh

It could have been just another day, another face-off between rival gangs in a Daun Penh street on Saturday, but this was over something different: love.

Hers was a face that could launch a throng of gangsters into a bloody sword fight, and that’s exactly what happened.

Witnesses told police they did not dare intervene to stop 10 thugs hacking each other but kept a close eye on things until officers arrived.

By that stage, most of them had fled, bar two, who were arrested. KOH SANTEPHEAP
