Border shooting: Five shot, one dead on Thai border

Border shooting
One Cambodian man was killed and four others injured on Sunday afternoon after they were shot by Thai soldiers after illegally crossing the border from Oddar Meanchey province into Thailand’s Sisaket province. Trapaing Prasat district police chief Keo Tan said that Thai soldiers fired on a group of five Cambodians from Kampong Thom province’s Baray district after they were allegedly found logging rosewood two kilometres inside Thai territory.  He identified the deceased man as 43-year-old Si Boeun. “Khmer authorities have contacted the Thai side to ask for the Cambodian body to be taken back [to Cambodia],” the police chief said.  He added that the four other victims who were shot are already back in Cambodia, where they are receiving treatment for their injuries at the Oddar Meanchey provincial hospital.
