Cambodia renews efforts over hostages

Phnom Penh - Cambodia may need help from Thailand to free a British mine remover and his Cambodian interpreter who were kidnapped by radical Marxist guerillas, a government official said Thursday. Christopher Howes, 36, of Bristol and Cambodian Houn Hourth, 30, were abducted by Khmer Rouge guerillas near the11th century temples of Angkor Wat in northwestern Cambodia on 26 March. They had been working with the British-based Mines Advisory Group, a demining organisation. AP
