General dismisses wire report

A ROYAL Cambodian Armed Forces general stationed at Preah Vihear temple said Monday that a radio report broadcast Sunday asserting that Thai soldiers had placed barbed wire in Cambodian territory was false.

Radio Free Asia reported Sunday that Thai soldiers had stretched about 40 metres of barbed wire on the Cambodian side of the border in Preah Vihear province.

But Srey Doek, commander of Military Division 3, told the Post Monday that the barbed wire installed near Sa Em village, Kontout commune, Choam Ksan district, Preah Vihear province, was actually in Thai territory.

"They can do whatever they want because it is in their territory," he said. "We will react when they do it in our land."

Also Monday, Yim Phim, commander of Brigade 8, said a forest fire near the temple had caused mines to explode.
