A pair of military police officers are in custody after delivering a little extrajudicial justice on Wednesday in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district. Police say the off-duty duo were leaving a nightclub when a group of men blocked their car and kicked it before running off.

At that point they bolted, only to be apprehended after destroying a moto in a traffic accident. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
