Three Chinese men held for attempted murder

Three Chinese nationals were charged with the attempted murder of a Cambodian woman on Friday in Chom Chao commune, in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district.

Police identified the suspects as Zou Xinan, 44, a former co-worker of the victim, and Qiu Xingjie, and Hu Xuehua, both 38, who were tourists.

They are accused attempting to murder Xinan’s 26-year-old colleague in a revenge attack after the victim reported his attempted blackmail and rape to the company. After their assault, the three accused fled but were apprehended outside the Phnom Penh International Airport.

During the assault, the victim received several bruises to her head, mouth, chest, left leg and ear, and a cut on her right thumb.
