Villagers flee Cambodia-Thai shelling

Residents choose whether to flee or fortify their homes as rocket exchanges continue.

    Thai and Cambodian troops have clashed for a fourth straight day - with hours of shelling and machine gun fire.

    The soldiers are battling along a disputed border area surrounding a 900-year-old temple located on a mountain.

    The fighting has shocked many residents in what are normally quiet rural villages.
