In Brief: Thai Soldiers stay one night at Ta Sim

More than 50 Thai soldiers withdrew from Ta Sim, located near the

disputed Preah Vihear temple, on Thursday after the Cambodian military

complained about their presence. "They just came Wednesday and stayed

one night at Ta Sim," Yim Phim, commander of Brigade 8, told the Post

Thursday. "They went back today after our military commanders at the

front line asked them to leave because it is a disputed area."
