Thai-Cambodia border fighting enters fourth day

Cambodian and Thai troops have exchanged fire in a disputed border area for a fourth consecutive day.

Artillery and machine-gun fire was heard around the 11th-Century Preah Vihear temple, which Cambodia says has already been damaged in the fighting.

At least five people were killed in clashes over the weekend and thousands of civilians have fled the area.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has called on both sides to "exercise maximum restraint".

The BBC's Guy De Launey reports.
