Thai soldiers shoot man, sister says

Thai soldiers shot a 25-year-old Cambodian on Sunday while he was collecting plants with friends near the border on Dangrek Mountain in Banteay Meanchey province, the man’s relative said. Pheuth Phim sustained injuries to his leg and was rushed to Monkol Borei Hospital for emergency treatment, according to his sister, Pheuth Nuch, 26. The victim, from Dei Thmei village in Thmar Puok district, has been operated on but doctors say they are unsure whether his leg can be saved. Soum Chankea, of the rights group Adhoc, said he would send a letter about the incident to NGOs in Thailand. Ung Oeun, Banteay Meanchey provincial governor, refused to comment.
