PHNOM PENH - Fresh fighting between Thai and Cambodian troops on Saturday killed at last one Thai soldier, raising the number of dead on both sides to eight in two days in the worst bloodshed since the United Nations called for a ceasefire in February.

Thousands of villagers have been evacuated from the thick, disputed jungle border area around the Ta Moan and Ta Krabey temples, about 150 km (93 miles) west of the 900-year-old Preah Vihear temple, which saw a deadly four-day standoff in February.

Thai army Lieutenant General Thawatchai Samutsakorn said one Thai soldier had been killed. At least 13 soldiers were wounded, according to the local Phnom Dongrak hospital. That followed the deaths of four Thai and three Cambodian soldiers on Friday.
