Cambodian and Thai soldiers exchange gunfire in brief clash at disputed border

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) – Cambodia has accused Thai soldiers of instigating a brief gunbattle between troops at a disputed border, saying nobody was injured in the latest clash between the two militaries.

A Cambodian official says the two sides fired rifles, machine guns and rockets in a 15-minute clash early Saturday at the Ou Smach checkpoint in northern Cambodia.

The official, Pech Sokhin, blamed Thai soldiers for firing shots after Cambodian troops ignored a demand to shift their location deeper into Cambodian territory.
