A former CNRP commune councilor was attacked by two unidentified men on a motorbike in Phnom Penh on Monday, adding to a string of assaults on politicians and activists from the banned political party.
In a photo that was widely shared on social media on Monday, Khiev Din, the former council member for Pur Senchey district’s Kakab I commune, was attacked from behind with an iron bar by two unidentified men riding a motorbike.
Din, 65, told VOD that the two men struck him while he was driving a motorbike to pick up his grandson from school on Monday morning, and the blow injured him. He said he considered the attack a political threat because of his previous role with the opposition party.
