THE ROOF, THE ROOF, THE ROOF IS ON FIRE
A man in Battambang province’s Banan district burned down his own house Wednesday after his wife refused to give him money to buy cigarettes. After drinking a litre of wine, the man threatened his wife, insisting he would burn the house down if she did not give him money. His wife refused and shouted, “Go ahead. Burn down the house if you want to.” The man then set his home on fire before police arrived and arrested him. The couple and their seven children are now homeless.

More than 10,000 video CDs, including pornographic videos, were found at a home pirating studio that was raided by police in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district Friday.

MAN LITERALLY STOLE CABLE, POLICE SAY
A 23-year-old man was arrested for stealing electricity cables in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district last Thursday.

The suspect told police he resorted to stealing the cables and selling them because he had no job. People in the area have reported that their cables have frequently been stolen – even while they are watching evening television.

A sleepless journalist in Poipet province’s Poipet town was allegedly beaten by security guards from a local casino Friday. The victim, Oeu Bunthan, said that the incident occurred outside his home when he tried to tell one of the guards not to rev his motorbike engine at night. The guard then called over six other guards and two military police officials. Armed with electric batons, the suspects tried to break into the victim’s home but were blocked by the journalist, whose hand was bloodied in the scuffle. Oeu Bunthan called the incident a “violation of human rights”.
