3rd Thai soldier dies after clash [...another still in critical condition]

April 5, 2009

BANGKOK - A THAI soldier died of his injuries following a border gunbattle with Cambodian forces which claimed the lives of two other troops from his country, the Thai military said on Sunday.

Soldiers from both countries fought with machineguns, rockets and mortars on Friday as a long-running feud over territory near a temple on their disputed frontier boiled over.

'A third soldier died yesterday (Saturday). Another is still in a critical condition,' a Thai military official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

One of the other soldiers died at the site of the clash on Friday and the other passed away in hospital on the same day.

Cambodian and Thai officials held talks on Sunday to prevent any further fighting near the 11th century Preah Vihear temple.

Damn, Son! No wonder why Thai military was so quick to send in 1000 special forces, more tanks and personnel carriers. We fucked them up good and they got the fuck knocked out of them and try to get up eh. Our military didn't even blink and just stand there and say "wanna go again?"
