Cambodia's prime minister says Thailand fired more than 50,000 artillery and mortar shells in more than a week of border clashes.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday some shells that landed in Oddar Meanchey province have not exploded and must be disarmed before civilians return to evacuated areas. Thai comment on his claims was not immediately available.

The fighting that started April 22 has quieted in recent days. But Thailand's state broadcaster MCOT reported a Thai soldier was killed Monday night, bringing the death toll to one Thai civilian and a total of 17 soldiers from both sides.
