Lovestruck man gets leg, not heart, broken
Chatting up a girl proved dangerous for a 25-year-old man in Kandal province on Sunday, who broke his leg in the process. He was apparently flirting with the local coconut seller when her family spotted him. They beat the admirer mercilessly and broke his leg. Though hospitalised, he didn’t file a police report because he said he was in the wrong. The woman’s family said his conduct was improper. Rasmey Kampuchea
