"The armies of Cambodia and Thailand have exchanged fire across their border for a fourth day. Artillery and machine gun fire was heard in the disputed area around the 11th Century Preah Vihear temple, which was damaged in earlier fighting. On Sunday Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen asked the UN Security Council to stop what he said was Thailand's 'aggression' against his country. At least five people were killed in clashes on Friday and Saturday. Each side accuses the other of firing first." (02/06/11)
