Koh Sla: Cambodia's prime minister has urged for a peaceful resolution of a border crisis with neighbouring Thailand, a day after armed skirmishes between the two countries left at least three Thai soldiers dead.
Military commanders from both sides said calm had been restored after Friday's fighting, which saw troops exchange fire with assault rifles and rocket launchers along Cambodia's northern border near an 11th century temple.

Thailand acknowledged three of its soldiers had been killed and 12 wounded. Cambodia said it suffered no casualties.

The area has been a hotspot since Thailand took offence over Cambodia having the Preah Vihear temple declared a UN World Heritage site last year.
