13 Thai soldiers who surrendered to Cambodian soldiers during the fighting at Sekha Kirisvarak pagoda.
Preah Vihear, Cambodia – A Cambodian commander said on Thursday his country had released 13 Thai soldiers who surrendered during a deadly border shoot-out, although Thailand denies they were ever in custody.

Major General Srey Deok, commander of Cambodian troop operations in the disputed border area, said they had agreed to release the Thai soldiers after talks on Thursday with senior Thai military officials.

“We handed their weapons back to them already,” Srey Deok said, adding that the troops had been released and allowed to walk around the disputed area.

Thailand, however, has maintained that none of their troops were captured by Cambodia.
