Anti-Cambodia activists tried to raise the Thai flag in a disputed border area yesterday but were turned away by Thai authorities. 

Gen Preecha Iamsuphan and Veeraphan Malaiphan, leaders of the group, were stopped by authorities when they asked to fly the flag on the hill in the disputed 4.6-square-kilometre area near the Preah Vihear temple.

The pair then handed over the flag to authorities at Phu Makhua in Kantharalak district of Si Sa Ket province and asked them to fly the flag on their behalf.
