In Brief: Agreement to fight rice-eating pests

Cambodia and Vietnam have signed an agreement to fight brown plant hoppers, after rice crops were damaged in both countries in August and September. Foreign Minister Hor Namhong said the pests will only be stopped if both countries work together to defeat them. "Brown plant hoppers completely destroyed our rice paddies, so we will both fight them," he said on Saturday.
