Brutal beating at the Russian Market

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.

Brutal beating at the Russian Market

Post by Nixon » Sun Oct 06, 2019 9:30 pm

A couple of hours ago a domestic argument turned very violent. Two guys attacked the man in the argument with some kind of crowbar and a motorcycle helmet causing severe head injuries.

Police turned up with AK47 along with the ambulance.

Never seen violence like that before. I am sure other people have photos, I will not post any.

Was the victim an "opposition activist"?

Morticia hasn't heard anything through the Khmer grapevine? Send her to the market, she'll be back with all the gory details.

One of the reasons I left Phnom Penh. Witnessed what looked like a mob justice murder on the riverside, two machete attacks on St. 51, and numerous savage beatings back in the day.
