In 1975 a group of Khmer Rouge soldiers raided the island and took control. There then followed a series of raids and counter raids to try and gain ownership of the island. In 1982 an agreement saw the island handed officially to Vietnam. Then however Vietnam withdrew for Cambodia and the arguments rage still.
