Villagers attempt to fell tree near temple

THREE villagers were arrested by military police in Siem Reap province on Wednesday after allegedly attempting to cut down a tree in a protected area near an Angkorian-era temple. Yeam Sila, provincial deputy military police chief, said yesterday that 40-year-old Noy Nam, 36-year-old Toy Penh and 48-year-old Och Non, were caught in the act of cutting the tree by a conservation group. The conservation group detained the suspects until military police arrived to arrest them, he added.
