In Brief: Storm downs army tents at p vihear

Heavy rain and gusting winds Monday destroyed several army tents on the front lines of the disputed Preah Vihear temple complex along the Thai-Cambodia border, according to Brigade Commander Srey Doek. "Some of the soldiers' plastic tents were destroyed and they spent about two hours in the rain," Srey Doek said. He would not say how many of the tents were damaged by the storm. After the rain stopped, the soldiers were able to repair the tents and return them to their original location, Srey Doek said.
