A Cambodian man who said he was wounded by Thai soldiers near the Cambodian-Thai border in Banteay Meanchey province says he is recovering after receiving medical treatment this week in the province’s Monkul Borei district. Pheuth Phim, 25, said he was shot in the leg on Sunday as he was collecting plants in Banteay Meanchey’s Dangkrek mountains. “I’m very happy to hear from the physicians that my injured leg is getting better, but I would like to appeal to the public to help me because my family is poor,” Pheuth Phim said. Banteay Meanchey provincial police Chief Hun Heng said Thai authorities said the shooting was part of a crackdown on illegal logging by Cambodians in Thai territory. Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Kuong said this week that he had yet to receive detailed information about the case.
