Security tightened at Cambodian embassy

( - About 10 police officers were deployed at the Cambodian embassy in Bangkok on Wednesday, after the opposition grilled the government about Preah Vihear temple and nationalism threatened.

Police from Metropolitan Police Bureau are there to ensure safety, after the Democrat party slammed the government for allegedly giving up Thailand's sovereignty when the cabinet endorsed Cambodia's map of the ancient temple and the joint statement over it.

Tightened security was expected to remain until the censure debate is over.

So far, the situation in front of the embassy is normal. There have been no protests at the Cambodian mission.
