Samurais no more – police bust swordfight

Pailin town police had to physically keep the peace on Monday night when they broke up a samurai sword melee of 15 men before arresting the combatants.

The suspects, whom police say are “gangsters”, said they were job-seekers from Kampong Chhnang province who regularly get together for drinks at the public garden.

However, although nobody was injured, things got a little too rowdy that night and so the police stepped in and took them to the station for some civic education.
