The Chinese embassy in Phnom Penh on Sunday promised assistance to Cambodian police after a video surfaced in which a Chinese gangster declares he will seize control of a major Cambodian city while 20 other men, shirtless and tattooed, cheer him on.
Fears and bewilderment swirled in the wake of the 30-second video, which was distributed over social media on Sunday.
“Kampong Som, in the next three years, whether it will be safe or chaotic is under my control,” the man declares, referring to Cambodia’s major port city, also called Sihanoukville.
