Gangsters stage theatrical melee
A group of wine-drunk gangsters in Battambang province’s Thmor Kaul district on Thursday disrupted a play by storming the stage and assaulting the actors. As an audience of about 100 looked on, the gangsters attacked one actor and tore the dress off another, 24-year-old Ry Sarom, who said they had been drinking wine beneath the stage and had been asked to leave. Two men were arrested, while police Chief Yim Vichet said authorities were looking for eight accomplices.

Fingerpointing ends in gang fight
Rival gangster groups clashed Saturday in Kampong Chhnang province, leaving two people severely injured and landing three in jail, police said. Fighting erupted after one suspect, identified as Chuon Chunvatanak, who was drinking with friends, allegedly pointed at an unidentified man, who subsequently called a band of pole- and steel bar-toting accomplices and attacked the group of men. Two victims sustained severe head injuries, police said.
