Best to leave sleeping AKs lie: M’kiri police

Cops arrested a 50-year-old Laotian in Mondulkiri’s Koh Nhek district on Sunday when a few tipples too many turned him trigger happy. After drinking with neighbours, the man reportedly went back to his home and decided to let off a few rounds from an AK-47.

Cops arrived and confiscated the weapon, which had 14 bullets still ready to fly. The man said he’d “found it” the week before and only shot it in the sky for a bit of fun. Police informed him he should have handed it in and sent him to court for illegal use. NOKORWAT
