Pagoda fight sure to bring some bad karma

Is nothing sacred? Apparently not to the two men who were severely injured in a grisly fight during a pagoda ceremony in Kampong Chhnang’s Boribor district on Tuesday.

One man, 28, was watching the ceremony when another man, 23, suddenly hit him several times on the head with a wine bottle and cleaver, police said.

The victim retaliated, hitting his attacker with a stone until bystanders intervened. The duo, police said, had an argument before the ceremony. Police will question the men once they’ve recovered from their injuries. NOKORWAT
