Protests force temple scale-down

Protests in Bangkok have forced the withdrawal of 300 military police from Preah Vihear temple, according to Cambodian military based on the border. "About 300 soldiers withdrew from the temple on Friday," said RCAF Brigade 12 Commander Srey Doek. "They were here to prevent Thai protesters from entering our temple, but now they can't come here because they are busy with the demonstrations in Bangkok." But Ho Bunthy, deputy commander of Border Military Unit 402, added that Thai soldiers had closed the gate at Ta Moan Thom temple and were keeping Cambodians from visiting the disputed site.
