Locals Smackdown Thieves Bag-Snatching from Westerners on St 172, Phnom Penh

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

The robbery/shootings I recall include a UN worker shot in 2011 in bkk1 on her doorstop, a guy was shot in the leg down a backstreet of bassac in 2013, a Japanese guy was shot the same weekend, a Dutch woman was shot on meth alley (178) in 2014(?), and some kid shot in the arse by an okhna's bodyguards on Norodom. I'm sure there's been many others.
