WOMAN KILLS SELF OVER DAD’S CRITICISM
A 22-year-old killed herself by swallowing poison on Monday after becoming enraged that her father was criticising her for switching phones frequently, police in Kampong Cham province said. The woman’s father reported that on the day in question, he berated his daughter because she was always changing phones to get hold of the latest flashy models. He also had harsh words for her fondness for long evening strolls. This caused the woman to become angry, and she eventually decided to swallow some poison. Her father sent her to hospital, but the effects of the poison occurred too quickly, and she died.

BOYFRIEND ACCUSED OF STABBING WOMAN
An 18-year-old woman died on Monday after her longtime boyfriend allegedly stabbed her with a knife when she tried to leave him, police in Battambang reported. Police who arrived at the scene said they managed to speak with the victim as she lay dying. Despite the stabbing, she told them that she and her boyfriend loved each other very much. She had decided to leave him, she said, because he had no money to support her. The boyfriend, who attacked the victim while she was home alone, fled the scene afterwards. The victim’s family members have urged police to arrest him quickly.

WAT PHNOM CAMERA THIEVES NABBED
Two men were arrested after they allegedly swiped a foreign tourist’s camera at Wat Phnom in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Saturday. Police said the foreigner took his camera out with the intent of documenting the beauty of the capital’s landmark attraction. But two men came along and stole the device. Both were arrested a short while later. Police said such actions negatively affect Cambodia’s all-important tourism industry. The suspects allegedly admitted to the crime, then helpfully informed police that it was not the first time they had stolen from foreign tourists. They have been sent to court.
