Border skirmish between Cambodian and Thai troops

6:01 am on 25 January 2010

Military officials say Cambodian and Thai troops have reportedly exchanged fire near a disputed border temple - the latest in a series of skirmishes.

Both sides deny responsibility for starting it.

No-one was wounded but rifles and rockets were fired for about 10 minutes.

A Thai army official says the clash stemmed from confusion when Thai troops were patrolling for illegal loggers near the border.
