Well, that’s one way to settle a land dispute

Tired of a land dispute, a husband and wife in Kampong Cham’s Chamkar Leu district took matters into their own hands.

On Wednesday the pair decided to end a longstanding dispute with the husband’s brother by tearing down his house.

The deputy commune police chief intervened, and tried to protect the house, but the husband pulled out a machete and took swipes at the lawman.

The man and his wife were arrested and the brother plans to sue them. Nokorwat
