2 January 2014
A Burmese national was found dead in the Malaysian State of Malacca on Tuesday, apparently killed during a drunken brawl with three of his compatriots, reports Malaysia’s state-run Bernama news agency. According to the report, the victim, 25-year-old Kyaw Swe Oo, worked at the food court of the Plaza Pandan Malim, where one of the suspects was also employed. Police found the dead man lying in a pool of blood after responding to a call at around 2:40 am. “Based on the wound and the blood-stained weapon which was found not far from where the body of the victim was found, we believe the victim was stabbed with a pair of scissors,” police said in a statement.
