Tuk-tuk, moto rivalry erupts into violence

Two motodops were badly injured early on Saturday following a violent clash with a pair of tuk-tuk drivers in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district. Police said the men were competing for customers when they began to argue.

The skirmish turned violent, and the motodops suffered head injuries after the tuk-tuk drivers allegedly attacked them with machetes. The tuk-tuk drivers were injured on their shoulders and chests.

They denied the allegations, saying they were merely bystanders who got mixed up in the fight. Nokorwat
