MINISTER of Defence Tea Banh has returned to Cambodia after a brief health scare following talks in Thailand, and resumed his daily work yesterday, ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat said.

On Saturday, Tea Banh was hospitalised in Bangkok because of pain caused by gallstones, after he helped to lead a meeting of the General Border Committee with his Thai counterpart, Minister of Defence Prawit Wongsuwan.
