Don’t ask me about my business: son-in-law
A drunken man threw a bowl at his mother-in-law in Kandal province on Wednesday because she dared question him about his family’s business. The woman told police that the 42-year-old man was constantly drunk and violent, and never worked to support her daughter. She said she told him not to drink, and to help his wife financially. He then reportedly accused her of not knowing about his family’s problems, and threw a bowl at her, drawing blood. Police arrested the man and sent him to court for questioning.

Student denied trendy items hangs himself
A student hanged himself in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district because his mother refused to give him money to buy clothes and a new mobile phone. A neighbour reported that the victim had asked his mother to sell some of her gold jewellery in order to pay for a new phone and some sharp new threads, but she refused. His grandmother reportedly advised him to save his own money. The student, who was said to be depressed, decided to hang himself using a nylon wire attached to a tree. He was found dead the next morning.
