Cambodia Breaking News (Kampong Thom): On October 2, 2019, a 30-year-old man, Mao Mai, a drug addict, was arrested after attacking his two friends with an axe in Ngoun Siem village, Stong district, Kampong Thom. The victims, Tith Ren, a 43-year-old man, died at the scene, and Ren Veth, an 18-year-old boy, was seriously injured in the attack.

Before the incident, the suspect came to the victim's house. The victim walked away to feed the chickens behind his house, and then went to clean his hands and brush his teeth near the water jar. Suddenly, without warning, the suspect took an axe to attack the victim and hacked him to death. Another victim who was present at the scene was seriously injured.
The suspect was a drug addict, and nobody knows why he suddenly became crazy. He and the victim had never argued before, and they were good friends.

The suspect was arrested for questioning and case preparation for his court appearance. The body was returned to the man's family for funeral rites. The 18-year-old victim is being treated in hospital.

Damn, the show goes on and on, is that a typical effect from meth to switch off and kill your good friends in a hurry, medieval-style ?
