THEY GOT GAME, BUT COPS AIN'T PLAYING
Police in Phnom Penh say they have arrested a group of “game-players” caught gambling Sunday in the capital’s Choam Chav commune. Originally, 19 alleged gamblers were arrested and sent to the police station. However, more than half were released after police realised some were just food vendors and servants. Police say they are preparing to send nine of the arrested group to municipal court for punishment.

Police in Pursat province have arrested a “cruel” 27-year-old man accused of getting into a drunken brawl with villagers.
