Fruit vendors dice it up in brutal cleaver fight

Free-market competition turned into a market free-for-all in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district on Friday.

According to police, two fruit vendors were arguing when one grabbed a cleaver and took a swing at the other.

He missed, but the intended victim grabbed the cleaver and allegedly hit his attacker in the head and arm, injuring the man’s nephew in the process.

Police apprehended the vendor, but could not offer a motive. Onlookers, however, said the two often vied for customers. NOKORWAT
