They say good fences make good neighbours, perhaps an ungenerous outlook on life, but one that applied in Kandal this week where a dispute over land between two homes ended in violence.
Unable to resolve the matter, neighbour #1 decided to simply have his Koh Thom district home picked up and moved 3 metres closer to his neighbour on the sly.
Coming out the next day, neighbour #2 found him extending the roof on his back porch.
Grabbing a stick, she attempted to dismantle his work, then bloodied his head when he tried to stop her. She’s now in custody.
