Thousands to celebrate listing of Wat Phnom

Several thousand people are expected to turn out at Preah Vihear temple on Wednesday for celebrations marking the two-year anniversary of its listing as a UNESCO World Heritage site. “I am sure that several thousand people will turn out and the celebration will draw more attention from the international community to support protection and preservation,” Ek Tha, a spokesman at the Council of Ministers’ Press and Quick Reaction Unit, said yesterday. Thailand has opposed the July 2008 listing, leading to a series of armed clashes between the two countries.
