Sword-attack incident leaves diners baffled

Sword-attack incident leaves diners baffled

Three capital friends were caught off guard when their main entree turned out to be a sword attack at dinner on Tuesday.

Finishing up a case of beer and five appetisers at a Meanchey district beer garden, the trio were set upon at random by another group of drinkers with blades.

The aggressors fled, leaving a female member of their party behind. Police who arrived later took her to the station for questioning.

After denying she was privy to the attack plan, cops set her free and began a search for the absent assailants.
