Brotherly love proved dangerous for a victim in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district on Monday when he was beaten by two brothers for insulting one.
Police say a group of friends were drinking beer together when the victim said something “indirectly insulting” to one of his pals.
A short scrap was broken up by other drinkers, but the insulted man left and later returned with his brother.
They used a stick and a piece of metal to beat the victim. Only one was arrested as the other fled.
