Thai border blockage drags into second day

Thai protesters continued to prevent Cambodian motorbikes from entering Thailand via the O’Smach international border gate in Oddar Meanchey province, officials said yesterday. The gate was closed for a few hours Wednesday after Thai villagers demonstrated in an attempt to block Cambodian vehicles from transporting goods across the border. After Cambodian officials negotiated with their Thai counterparts yesterday, carts were allowed across, but motorbikes were still banned. “We demand that the Thai authorities allow Cambodians’ motorbikes to travel to the market,” Chhim Sivuth, the province’s chief inspector, said yesterday.
