Well-meaning mediator meets match in Svay Rieng

A man's attempt to mediate a dispute between his sister and her hot-headed husband didn’t go very well on Sunday, as he ended up on the receiving end of a beating.

The 44-year-old man was alerted to his brother-in-law’s violent behaviour towards his sister in Svay Rieng province, and kindly suggested an amicable resolution to their dispute.

The belligerent bloke couldn’t take the suggestion and allegedly walloped his brother-in-law with a wooden stick, sending him to the hospital.
