Not-so-pious punks beat fellow pagoda resident

A group of teens staying at the capital’s Chumpou Voan pagoda are being sought by police after they viciously beat a mentally ill man living on the grounds.

Authorities said the victim, who was known to drink heavily, had nowhere else to go but had never harmed or provoked others staying at the Por Sen Chey district temple. They chalked the attack up to senseless cruelty. NOKORWAT
