Police arrest alleged rapist after five years
A 26-year-old man was arrested in Kandal province on Monday in connection with a rape that happened more than five years ago.

The suspect denied the allegations on Monday, saying that it was his friends who committed the rape.

Man kills himself with booze and pesticide
A man killed himself by imbibing a deadly cocktail of alcohol and insecticide in Kampong Thom province’s Santuk district on Saturday. The victim’s wife said he took his own life following an argument between them, in which she blamed her husband for neglecting their rice fields due to his excessive drinking. The implication that he drank too much drove the man to drink more, this time laced with a toxic chemical used to kill insects. The man began violently convulsing not long afterwards.
