Cambodian Monks

A group of 19 Cambodian monks collecting alms around Phuket were today exposed and disrobed and will be deported soon.

The monks have rounded up about 6 pm and taken to Mongkonnimit temple in Phuket City after officers from Vichit and Kathu raided their jungle camp.

Under an agreement with Cambodia, as unwanted aliens, they will be transferred back to the Thai-Cambodian border by VIP bus. Illegal Burmese are transported back to the Burma-Thai border in police wagons or trucks.
