BANGKOK - One Thai soldier died and four were wounded in further clashes overnight on a disputed stretch of border between Thailand and Cambodia, a Thai military spokesman said on Friday, as a ceasefire agreed the previous day failed to hold.

At least 16 people have died in the fighting over the past week, centered on ancient temples at two points on the border.

Thai regional army commander Thawatchat Samutsakorn told Reuters four Thai soldiers were also wounded during two clashes involving guns and grenades, which he said had been started by the Cambodian side.
