Following this week’s furore over the light fixtures at Angkor Wat, the Cambodian govenrment has sued the president of the Khmer Civilisation Foundation for spreading false information about the nature of the fixtures. The government and the custodian Apsara Authority maintain that the lights were installed into existing nooks and no drilling was done.
A group Cambodian NGOs recently concluded their fact-finding visit to Preah Vihear to asses the damage done to the site and bring aid to the villagers and soldiers. 250 homes were destroyed during the recent conflict earlier this month, as well as damage done to 60 spots on the temple and the NGOs are trying to make the Thais accountable.
