Cambodia says brief border clash with Thailand triggered by fighting dogs

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — Bad blood between Cambodians and Thais that
has led to several deadly skirmishes over disputed territory has spread
to their canine compatriots, with a dog fight sparking a brief border
clash.
Local Cambodian Governor Hem Sophal says soldiers from the
two countries were separately patrolling the border on Saturday when
dogs accompanying them began fighting. He says that led the soldiers to
briefly exchange fire, though no one was hurt.
Hem Sophal
expressed regret at the incident Monday, saying Cambodian soldiers
normally have good relations with their Thai counterparts.
Thai Army Spokesman Col. Sansern Kaewkamnerd denied any renewed border fighting.
At least eight people were killed earlier this month in clashes at another point along the border.
