BAN NONGKANA, Thailand - Heavy fighting erupted on Sunday for a third day between Thai and Cambodian troops, with gunfire and explosions heard on both sides of the disputed border as the United Nations renewed calls for a lasting solution to the conflict.

The clashes, which have killed 11 people on both sides since Friday, started at 9:50 a.m. (0250 GMT) with the sound of sustained artillery explosions.

Some villagers on the Thai side were loading pick-up trucks with family and pets and fleeing, while others packed into newly dug bunkers or hid in large concrete shelters.
