Police arrested a man for producing a video showing a brawl between Chinese gangs in Phnom Penh.
Chea Pov, National Police anti-cybercrime department director, said the clip intended to cause racial hatred.
The clip, posted on December 4, shows Chinese nationals fighting with swords. The suspect edited the clip by combining a film with real footage of a Tuol Kork district brawl.
“We found the video to be fake. It intended to cause social disorder and racial hatred,” police said.
The suspect confessed on Saturday he edited the clip to boost the popularity of his Facebook page.
