RESTLESS CROWD ATTACKS DRIVER
Two bullets were shot into the air by security guards at the Kirirom Club after an accident opposite the former Kirirom theatre at 10pm Tuesday in Phnom Penh's Beoung Prolit commune, Prampi Makara district. The guards fired their guns after a fight broke out following a traffic accident involving a red Tico that crashed into a motorbike. The restless crowd that gathered after the accident was trying to break the windshield of the Tico because they thought that the driver of the car had run the motorbike off the road deliberately. The Tico and the motorbike have been taken to Prampi Makara  police station. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
