WOMAN ARRESTED AFTER DRUG BUST
Anti-drug police in Banteay Meanchey province have seized 1,900 tablets of methamphetamine after arresting three women earlier this week. Police originally suspected that the trio caught with the tablets were mules who planned to transport the drugs. However, two of the women were later released because it was decided that they were not related to the case, police said. The two women then sped off in a car that was seized at the time of arrest. The remaining woman remains in custody.

A 28-year-old man was stabbed in the hand with a knife-sharpener Saturday, and his younger brother was struck three times in the forehead while dancing during a wedding party Saturday. Police said the violence was sparked after the younger brother accidentally stepped on another man’s foot during the boogie session in Kampong Thom. The man took offence at the younger brother’s poor dancing. But when the older brother tried to intervene, he was stabbed.
