Travelers' Alert

As this Associated Press article indicates, there is increased potential for sudden armed conflict between the armies of Cambodia and Thailand along a disputed border region. While neither country's military is equipped for a highly mobile war of maneuver, it is still the sort of situation in which tourists should be wary. Note that Thailand is alleging that Cambodia is planting land mines, which could easily destroy the leg of an unsuspecting tourist.
