Clubbers attacked by rock-throwing gang

A Phnom Penh man was left wishing he had visited the loo before leaving the club as he was robbed during a pit stop in Choam Chao commune early yesterday.

The garment worker and his pal were on the way home from a night of dancing and had pulled over to relieve themselves when they were ambushed by four screaming stone throwers.
