Young woman stabs self after arguing with aunt

A woman stabbed herself in the stomach with a knife because her aunt wouldn’t let her go out for the night.

The 23-year-old victim had a fiery argument with her aunt in their home in Meanchey district on Monday night, before storming off to her room.

Police said that the aunt’s attempts to negotiate just resulted in more fury from the young woman, who finally stabbed herself.

The victim was brought to Bayon Hospital but doctors there asked the family to bring her to the Khmer-Soviet Friendship Hospital instead.
