Migrants Meeting Increased Thai Police

Cambodian workers crossing into Thailand illegally for work have met increased Thai police patrols, as a tense military standoff between the two countries continues.

More Thai border police have been deployed along the border and have detained migrants who attempt to cross for work, provincial officials said.

Thousands of Cambodians cross into Thailand to work each day as farmers informal checkpoints along the border, returning to their Cambodian homes in the evening.

On Wednesday, five workers crossing in O'Chrov district, Banthey Meanchey province, were detained by Thai border police for 20 hours before being released to Cambodia.
