Juice, blood flows in Pursat town gang fight

It's not easy to maintain your tough-guy image when arguing over juice, but seven young “gangsters” did their best on Tuesday in Pursat town.

Police said a group of three had ordered a tasty treat from a vendor only to have a second group of four approach and demand to be served first.

“First come, first served” was the battle cry as belts, knives and assorted bric-a-brac were employed in the ensuing showdown.

Police arrived only to see six of the youths scatter. A seventh was badly injured enough to need hospitalisation. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
