BANGKOK — Soldiers deployed along Cambodia's disputed border with Thailand on Sunday said fighting between the two nations has broken out near an 11th century temple for a third day despite a cease-fire.

A Cambodian soldier, Lt. Pen Song, said troops exchanged artillery and mortar fire along the Phnom Troap mountain range, about 3 kilometers from the historic Preah Vihear temple, a UN World Heritage Site that belongs to Cambodia under a 1962 World Court ruling disputed by many Thais.

A Thai official in the disputed area confirmed that fighting had broken out.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
