Border shooting: Officials say teen killed by Thai troops

Border shooting
A tennager from Oddar Meanchey province’s Trapaing Prasat district was shot and killed by Thai soldiers along the border last week, officials said.

Touch Ra, director of the border relations office at Choam international border crossing in Anlong Veng district, said Huot Hang, 16, was part of a group of four who allegedly crossed illegally into Thailand to cut down trees on Sunday.

“Our Thai partner reported to us on Tuesday and confirmed that three Cambodian men were arrested and one was shot for illegal logging and using a gun to counterattack against the local authorities,” said Touch Ra, director of the border relations office at Choam international border crossing in Anlong Veng district.
