Yet more Pchum Ben-related violence, this time in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district, early on Saturday, where four restaurant waiters were attacked at a pagoda by men wielding knives and swords.
The assailants threatened to kill their victims if they didn’t hand over a motorbike, causing mild injuries to some of them.
The terrified festival goers knelt down and begged to be spared, before the suspects escaped with the motorbike.
The injured catering workers were hospitalised. Police are looking for the bike thieves.
