Opera loses its class via beer-soaked brawl

A taste of culture was replaced by the taste of blood for a pair of Cambodian opera-goers in Kandal province’s Muk Kampuol district on Sunday night.

The 21-year-olds apparently sat drinking beer, before misplaced glances at a nearby group of six men erupted into a ruckus, leaving the duo hospitalised.

Cops intervened but only got one 22-year-old assailant, as the others escaped. Police sent the suspect to court and are on the lookout for his accomplices. DEUM AMPIL
