Thai, Cambodian troops clash again on disputed border

PHNOM PENH - Thai and Cambodian troops clashed again on Saturday on their disputed border, Cambodian officials said, a day after fighting in the area killed at least four Thai paramilitary troops and three Cambodian soldiers.
Both sides have evacuated thousands of villagers and accused each other of firing first in the thick, disputed jungle around Ta Moan and Ta Krabei temples in the northeastern Thai province of Surin, about 150 km (93 miles) southwest of the 900-year-old Preah Vihear temple, which saw a deadly stand-off in February.Cambodian government spokesman Phay Siphan said the latest fighting began before dawn on Saturday and had not stopped.
