Censors have banned a new documentary on Thai-Cambodian border conflicts, claiming the film is misleading and would disrupt public order. 

The five-member censorship panel said the Thai-produced film could "persuade viewers to falsely believe" incorrect information, and was a threat to national security and international relations.

The film, Fah Tam Pan Din Soong, or Boundary, was directed by Nontawat Numbenchapol. It recounts the journey of a private who took part in the 2010 crackdown on the red shirts before returning home to Si Sa Ket.
