DRUNKEN DRIVER DIES CRASHING INTO SHOP
A 35-year-old man died after crashing his motorbike into a shop in Kandal province Tuesday. Police say the man was drunk when the crash occurred. Officers appealed to residents to not drive if they get drunk because they would be sorry if they saw someone dying in a traffic accident. Neighbours said they had often seen the man driving after drinking. The man’s wife reported that she last heard from her husband before a meeting with friends that lasted the entire day. Then she heard the news of his fatal crash.

COP HANGS HIMSELF AFTER ROW WITH WIFE
A 41-year-old policeman hanged himself Thursday in Banteay Meanchey province after an angry confrontation with his wife, police said. The wife reported that her husband often drank with his colleagues. On Thursday, she confronted her husband, telling him: “Every day when you arrive home, you are always drunk. You are a policeman.” This appeared to anger the husband. He threatened to hang himself, but his wife did not believe him, she said. But when she awoke, she saw her husband had hanged himself from a tree behind their house.
