Thai police and angry local villagers blocked a convoy of nationalist Thai protesters on Thursday from reaching a disputed ancient temple on the country’s border with Cambodia. The latest flare-up — which has seen a buildup of troops on both sides of the border — was triggered by Bangkok’s support for the UNESCO listing, which government critics said was tantamount to selling out Thailand’s heritage.
