Workers end Thai-Cambodia border protest

- +

About 300 disgruntled Cambodian workers and used-garment merchants last night ended their blockade on the border with Thailand. 

The workers had earlier parked their two-wheel carts in front of the Aranyaprathet-Poi Pet border checkpoint on the Poi Pet side of the Thai-Cambodian friendship bridge. They demanded the release of a group of Cambodian workers and vendors who were earlier arrested by customs officials.

The blockade brought traffic on both sides of the border to a halt.
