Buffalo Gores Wedding Guests in Rampage

Six persons were injured when a rampaging bull buffalo gored guests at a wedding ceremony and passers-by, police said Friday. The buffalo charged from a nearby field into some 100 guests who were attending a wedding Thursday of the daughter of a Cambodian tycoon on the outskirts of the capital Phnom Penh, said Chey So Sila, a district police chief, declining to reveal the name of the tycoon.
After goring four guests he ran off to attack two passers-by, the officer said. All were hospitalized, some with serious injuries. He said the buffalo's owner fledhis home after learning about the incident for fear of being held responsible.
What prompted the attack was not known.
Sao Bun Ann, a police officer who provided security for the ceremony, said the buffalo was shot dead about 1.2 miles away from the ceremony, which proceeded after an hour-long delay.
