Don’t ask me about my business: son-in-law
A drunken man threw a bowl at his mother-in-law in Kandal province on Wednesday because she dared question him about his family’s business.

He then reportedly accused her of not knowing about his family’s problems, and threw a bowl at her, drawing blood. Police arrested the man and sent him to court for questioning.

Student denied trendy items hangs himself
A student hanged himself in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district because his mother refused to give him money to buy clothes and a new mobile phone. A neighbour reported that the victim had asked his mother to sell some of her gold jewellery in order to pay for a new phone and some sharp new threads, but she refused.
