Sword and sticks ruin a pagoda dance evening

THE array of weapons close by when drunken young men collide on Cambodia’s dance floors never ceases to amaze.

In the latest instance of such violence, two men, aged 21 and 25, were beaten with sticks and slashed with a sword after bumping into a group of gangsters while getting down at a pagoda in Kampong Chhnang on Friday.

The two victims are recovering in hospital. KOH SANTEPHEAP
