Man Stabbed Over Durian
A 46 year old man was recently stabbed twice in Singapore in a dispute over $2 durians. Conflict between vendors and customers in Singapore has risen sharply this year and is blamed on the low yield of Malaysia’s summer season as well as the opening of exportation to China. The combined result is a 20 to 30 percent reduction in Singapore’s durian supply. Other customers report being overcharged after sale, one of even being held until payment was made.
The victim, stabbed twice in the side, reportedly walked to the street where he hailed a cab to the hospital. At the time of writing, he was in the intensive care unit. I hope the hospital will allow him a little durian while he recovers.
