Two Cambodian soldiers and two civilians, one from each side, were
killed in Friday’s clashes in Preah Vihear near a disputed Hindu
temple. A Thai soldier was killed the following day before a ceasefire
was declared by both sides.
On Sunday, fighting resumed
damaging part of an 11th-century temple, which was declared a United
Nations World Heritage site in 2008.
Both sides accused each other of restarting the fighting.
The media in Cambodia and Thailand reported that as many as 64 Cambodian soldiers were killed while 30 Thai troops died.
The clashes forced villagers near the border to evacuate.
