Four Chinese nationals suffered injuries to their legs when a gunman fired shots at them on Monday night at a restaurant in Sihanoukville, said Phnom Penh city’s commune 3 police chief Khiev Vantha.
He said the eight expatriates were having dinner at the Si Hu restaurant when two others believed to be also Chinese nationals arrived on a motorbike, entered and fired four shots.
Vantha said the victims claimed they didn’t recognise either of the suspects. Cheap Sotheary, the provincial coordinator for rights group Adhoc, said crime was rising in Preah Sihanouk province due to an increase in workers and tourists from China.
“They even dare to use guns and swords and don’t respect and follow the law here,” she said.
