  • Description

    Thailand has sent army and police units to patrol stretches of its 180-mile (290-kilometre) border with Cambodia and guard key crossing points to prevent disorder spreading into Thai territory.

    Thai troops have been ordered to disarm Cambodian Government troops who try to escape into Thailand and to check possible infiltration by Khmer Rouge forces.

    At the Thai-Cambodian border town of Poipet, Thai police are enforcing a Government stipulation that no Cambodian refugees will be ??lowed to enter Thailand.

    UP to Friday (18 April) no Khmer Rouge forces had entered Poipet on the Cambodian side of the border, but as a precaution district officials and immigration officers were confiscating arms from local residents. These included machine guns, rifles and small arms.
