Three Cambodian and three Thai soldiers were killed. It was the first serious outbreak of hostilities since fighting in February near the 900-year-old Hindu temple Preah Vihear left at least 10 dead and prompted a UN appeal for a lasting ceasefire. Termites chewup cash LUCKNOW: Police say termites have devoured currency notesworth 10 million rupees ($208,000) in a steel bank chest in northern India. Officer Navneet Rana says the bankmanager discovered the damagewhen he opened the reinforced room in an old bank building on Wednesday. Rana said: Its a matter of investigation how termites attacked bundles of currency notes stacked in a steel chest.

Passengers were asleep on the boat when it collided on Thursdaywith thewreck of a cargo ship that had sunk a few days earlier in theMeghna River at Sarail, 90km fromDhaka. Catholic devotee Joey Sacdalan is nailed to a cross during a re-enactment of the crucifixion yesterday Picture: AFP Nailed to cross in bizarre Easter ritual SAN PEDRO CUTUD: Several Filipinos were nailed to wooden crosses to re-enact Jesus Christs suffering in a bizarre Good Friday rite rejected by the Catholic Church. Officials in San Juan village in northern Pampanga province say three labourers appeared calm as stainless steel nails were driven through their palms with hammers yesterday. They were then set aloft on crosses under a brutal sun for a few minutes as tourists snapped pictures. Village leader Remigio dela Cruz said four other men were crucified in nearby Santa Lucia village and more than a dozen more were nailed to crosses in his San Pedro Cutud community. Thousands of tourists watched the rituals. 5 bodies in garden NANTES: French police are looking for a man after a search for his family yielded a severed leg and five buried bodies believed to be those of his wife and their four children. A source close to the investigation said an active search had been launched for the husband and father, 50-year-old Xavier Dupont de Ligonnes, after the macabre find. De Ligonnes, a business manager, his 49-year-old school assistant wife and their children sons aged 21, 18 and 13 and a girl aged 16 disappeared earlier this month from their home in the western town of Nantes. The father had earlier told acquaintances he was a secret agent and was leaving to join a witness protection scheme. Police probing the disappearance found a section of human leg in the garden of the grey stone two-storey house on Thursday morning, then gradually unearthed five bodies throughout the day, Nantes prosecutor Xavier Ronsin told journalists in the city. Three bodies, those of mother Agnes, 49, and her two oldest sons, Thomas, 21 and Arthur, 18, were exhumed first from under a patio of the house, said the prosecutor, adding that they died in all likelihood by firearm. Later in the day, a statement said a fourth body that of 16-year-old Anne was exhumed with those of the familys two dogs. In a later update, the prosecutors office said a fifth body that of 13-year-old Benoit had been dug up. So the investigation of a worrying disappearance has become one for kidnap and murder, said Ronsin, who said there was no sign of violence in the house itself.
