Logger suffers serious wounds after shooting

Yeth Danich, 23, was shot by Thai forces and seriously injured Friday after entering Thai territory from Oddar Meanchey province to log, said Ra Da, chief of operation section at Siem Reap Referral Hospital.

“He got shot twice. His wounds were swarming with worms and the stench was pretty bad,” he said adding that the wounds were exacerbated because Danich spent two days hiding in the forest from the Thai soldiers.
