Broken mirror reflects Battambang road rage

Stricks and stones may break your bones, but they can also wreck your ride.

Three men riding a motorcycle in Battambang on Tuesday got so peeved at a car for bumping into their bike that they chased it down and pelted it with wooden sticks and rocks, breaking the mirror on its door.
