Has Thai-Cambodia fighting damaged Preah Vihear?By Bangkok Pundit Feb 07, 2011 8:30AM UTC
Cambodia says a disputed 11th Century temple – a UN World Heritage site – has been damaged during continued cross-border clashes with Thai troops.
Part of Preah Vihear temple collapsed after a Thai bombardment, officials said. Thailand has not commented.
“A wing of our Preah Vihear temple has collapsed as a direct result of the Thai artillery bombardment,” said the Cambodian military commander, in a statement.
BP: This doesn’t look good for the prospect of returning to the status quo given the importance of Preah Vihear to Cambodians.
