Nhim Pov, a nephew of Prime Minister Hun Sen, has been implicated by Phnom Penh
Municipal Police in a Dec 23 incident outside the Manhattan Nightclub in which three
Japanese tourists were beaten and stabbed. The incident was apparently sparked by
an altercation over seating space at a nearby food stall. Police have made no arrests.
Pov's older brother was arrested for shooting a security guard outside another Phnom
Penh entertainment venue in Aug 1999.
