Third Day Of Clashes Between Thailand, Cambodia

Thai and Cambodian officials say fighting has broken out in a disputed border territory for the third time in three days as part of an increasingly heated dispute over territory tied to an 11th-century temple.

Thailand on February 5 announced a ceasefire after clashes in the region killed at least five people.

Thai army spokesman Colonel Sansern Kaewkamnerd said there were no immediate reports of casualties from today's violence.

The feud over the historic Preah Vihear temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, goes back to a 1962 World Court ruling that it belongs to Cambodia. That decision not accepted by many Thais.
