Group Reports 10 Killings Along Thai Border

Thailand is denying claims its border authorities have been shooting and killing Cambodians.

The rights group Adhoc reported Wednesday that an investigation found at least 10 Cambodians fatally shot on the Thai border in the past two years, including a 6-year-old boy.

Thai spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn dismissed the findings of the report, telling VOA Khmer from Bangkok that Thailand has 100,000 Cambodians living peacefully in the country.

Cambodia has sent several official requests to Thailand to investigate allegations of killings, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
