Practising poker faces, or poking fun at faces?

Three young men were sent to court yesterday for a giving a pair of Chinese nationals a good old fashioned belt whipping in front of an Oddar Meanchey province casino.

Police said the men were walking past the casino when they bumped into the Chinese men smoking out front.

Claiming the two had looked at their face and “mocked” them, they stripped off their belts and let fly at the gamblers. Police intervened and hauled the whip-happy whippersnappers down to the station.
