DEPRESSED WOMAN TAKES HER OWN LIFE IN KEP
The body of a 20-year-old vendor was found hanging by a white handkerchief in her house in Kep on Wednesday, according to the woman’s relatives, who are struggling to explain why she apparently took her own life. Her relatives reported that the woman had been selling as per usual the morning her body was found. Her mother, however, said that the woman had appeared to be very sad in recent days, and that she had been praying constantly and talking about her deceased father, who had passed away last year.

IRON BAR ATTACK LEAVES COPS LOOKING FOR MOTIVE
A 22-year-old basket-maker was assaulted under mysterious circumstances in Poipet town last week, according to police. Investigators said the man was minding his own business as he collected money from customers when a group of “gangsters” came up from behind and hit him over the head with an iron bar. The man reported that he had been working as a basket-maker for just three days and had never had an argument with anyone, making the assault all the more puzzling. Police arrested a 15-year-old boy suspected in the attack, but other suspects managed to escape.
