Playful banter: fun until the cleavers come out

A garment worker in the capital’s Meanchey district tested his friend’s humour limits on Monday, and paid in blood.

According to police, the victim, 24, had been exchanging banter with a co-worker when he spat water at his workmate, which angered him enough that he left in a rage. He and his brother returned with a cleaver and hacked the victim in the head.

The victim and a friend escaped on a motorbike and police later arrested the perpetrators. Kampuchea Thmey
