Two wildlife-rangers were shot dead early on Saturday in their four-man patrol cracked down on two forest crimes in northwestern Cambodia's Preah Vihear province, according to a police report.

The incident took place at 1:00 a.m. local time in a jungle in Chorm Ksan district when the team were patrolling and handling two forest crimes, confiscating 11 sawing machines and one home-made gun, said the Preah Vihear Provincial Police Commissariat's report.

"A group of unidentified men had used an AK-47 rifle to fire many shots at the wildlife-ranger team, leaving two men dead, one injured and the other escaped unharmed," the report said. Enditem
