Border Killing: Logger still missing in Thailand

Border Killing
Authorities in Oddar Meanchey province said they had yet to locate a 20-year-old man who went missing last week after Thai soldiers opened fire on the group of illegal loggers with whom he had travelled across the border into Sisaket province. Keo Tann, district chief of Trapaing Prasat district, said district authorities had been cooperating with Thai authorities in the search for Phal Sokha, which began Friday. “Currently, we are concerned for his health because he does not have food to eat. But we expect we will find him soon,” he said. Phal Sokha’s 55-year-old father-in-law was shot and killed in the attack, and a second man sustained serious injuries, police said.
