webfact 167931 Posted February 6, 2011 Share Posted February 6, 2011 Renewed Thai-Cambodian Border Fighting: Army PHNOM PENH, February 6, 2011 (AFP) - Fresh clashes broke out on the Thai-Cambodian border Sunday around a disputed temple a day after both sides agreed a ceasefire, a Cambodian military commander told AFP. "We are fighting now, they started firing at us first," the source, who declined to be named, said, referring to Thai troops across the border. The latest outbreak of violence, which erupted at 6.35pm local time (1135 GMT), followed an agreement to halt fighting between the neighbouring nations on Saturday. Earlier clashes left at least five people dead in the area around the 11th-century Preah Vihear temple, which is claimed by both sides. -- (c) Copyright AFP 2011-02-06 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
