Shots and swords – a dangerous combination

Samurai swords should come with a warning: keep out of reach of drunkards. Unfortunately, they don’t. On Saturday, two men were enjoying dinner in Pailin town until a few drinks too many led to an argument.

After the men scuffled and threw a few punches, one man reached for a nearby sword and hacked his friend several times until he collapsed. Realising what he had done, the perpetrator fled. He was later arrested, while the victim was sent to hospital. KOH SANTEPHEAP
