Hundreds of Thai villagers living along the border in Sakeo province have clashed with Thai yellow shirts protesters after they tried to stop the yellow shirts from crossing into Cambodian territory at 1 p.m on Wednesday 5th January.

The report said that the Thai villagers stopped the yellow shirts at Ang Sila village from reaching Kork Tyoung (Khok Soung in Thai) village near border post No. 46.

The scuffle only stopped when Thai troops arrived to intervene and at 4 p.m, Thai troops agreed to let 7 yellow shirts
protesters through the picket line to inspect border No. 46. The group
was accompanied by Sakeo governor Mr. Sanit Natsooksri and Gen. Walit, Deputy
Commander of the Thai Army. The group cordially shook hands with
Cambodian officials and border guards before returning back to Thailand.

They were protesting against the arrests of the 7 Thai trespassers by Cambodian troops.
