207 Khmer-Muslims have been detained by Thai border police at Poipet International Checkpoint after materials that can be used to assemble home-made explosives were found among their possessions, reports Radio Free Asia.

Among the materials found in their push-carts were cut-nails and three small containers with 200 grams of gases packed in 73 cans.

However, Mr. Sim Sareth, chief of Poipet International Checkpoint, said the materials did not belong to the group and the detention was due to a confusion. "The materials did not belong to the group and that the (employment) company has just secured their release because they used proper passports, so the company intervened (to secure their release)", he said.

Mr. Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, also said on 29th May that the group has been released because the materials did not belong to them. "They all have been released because the push-carts that have been loaded with those explosive materials did not belong to them", he said.

Mr. Sim Soveth said, after their release, those 207 Khmer-Muslims have been transported by a Thai company to work in Thailand.
