Issued: 31 January 2003
The Cambodian government says it has arrested 150 "extremists" and will pay compensation to Thailand for the damage caused by the anti-Thai protesters on Wednesday.
Those arrested include the manager of a radio station that is alleged to have stimulated the torching of the Thai embassy by wrongly reporting that Cambodian embassy officials in Thailand had been killed.
The Cambodian Foreign Ministry has promised that compensation will be paid quickly without conditions for damage to the Thai embassy and Thai-owned business.
The damage bill is estimate to exceed $US23 million or nearly one Billion Baht.
