Road rage gets the best of two testy moto drivers

Police have arrested two men who took offence at being overtaken and decided to get revenge. The attack, in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district on Sunday, was sparked when a pair of riders sped past another two men on motorbikes who were stopped at a traffic light.
