PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia on Monday accused Thailand of damaging two ancient temples during three days of border clashes between the Southeast Asian neighbors that have left at least 12 soldiers dead.

There was no immediate comment from Thai authorities as a precarious calm held in the disputed border region housing the nearly 1,000-year-old stone temples of Ta Moan and Ta Krabey from the Khmer empire.

The current chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, was in ``intense'' talks with both sides to secure an end to the conflict, officials said.
