PAD protests Cambodia at the Asean summit


Thai protester led by People's Alliance for Democracy made a brief protest at Puk Tien Beach in Cha-Am district Saturday, demanding Cambodia to withdraw troops from disputed area adjacent to Preah Vihear temple.

Some 30 people gathered at the beach, about ten kilometers from meeting venue of Asean Summit, in responding to harsh remark by Cambodia that it would not extradite former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra to Thailand.

Thailand and Cambodia have been at the loggerhead over the disputed area near the Hindu temple for long time but the issue was heated a year ago as it was listed as a world heritage site.

The issue of Thaksin emerged into the conflict as Hun Sen said on Friday he would make him as his economic advisor.
