Man aims for shotgun divorce for daughter

A Kandal province man brought out the big guns – literally – to put his son-in-law in his place before being arrested in Sa’ang district on Tuesday.

Police say the 56-year-old farmer felt demeaned during a quarrel with his daughter’s husband, so ran home and came back brandishing an AK-47.

Word of the incident got to authorities, who visited the man’s home and confiscated the piece.

The wannabe Rambo was taken to the station for questioning.
