Mixed-up man roughed up by angry residents

A confused man in Phnom Penh’s Choam Chao commune was probably even more befuddled after being attacked by a mob as he attempted to unlock the wrong door at a rental room complex for garment workers.

On Monday evening, the man had attempted to unlock the door to a room he thought was his brother’s.
