Trip home complicated by sword-wielding pair

In the early hours of Monday morning, two brothers from Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district were still wiping the sleep from their eyes as their attackers approached.

As the sun came up while they waited for a bus to leave the capital, two young men wielding long swords took all of their possessions, which they were taking back to their home provinces.

Police arrived too late. The victims were brought to the station to try and describe the suspects. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
