And yet that’s exactly what occurred on Tuesday in Kampong Cham town. Police said the bright high schooler was on his way home when two classmate pulled up behind him and attacked him with the sword.

Luckily, his injuries were only slight and the two assailants were put behind bars. The duo helpfully explained they were angry with him for being “an outstanding student”. DEUM AMPIL
