Yes, two Buddhist countries are fighting over disputed land- the disputed land centers around, of all things, a temple (Preah Vihear Temple). The BKK Post reports two people were killed in over 2 hours of fighting yesterday with both sides blaming the other for starting the fighting.
The fighting included artillery exchanges and reports state an entire village on the Thai side of the border was destroyed.
This is a first for me- living in a country engaging in a border war.
In the coming days we will, hopefully, find out if the fighting is over the land or deeper political issues.
