BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai and Cambodian soldiers exchanged fire on a disputed stretch of their border on Sunday, witnesses said, the third flare-up in three days in an ancient feud over territory surrounding a 900-year-old Hindu temple.

The latest fighting occurred despite Thailand's announcement of a cease-fire on Saturday following clashes in the area that killed at least five people on Friday and Saturday.

A witness said about 20 rounds were heard going off in the vicinity of a 4.6-sq-km (two-sq-mile) disputed area around the 11-century Preah Vihear temple, a jungle-clad escarpment claimed by both countries.
