English Translations of Thai News Stories

This page contains translations of Thai news stories. They are pretty much picked at random as I come across them. I hope to add more as time permits.
Many of the stories come from Thailand's Thairath newspaper, which is a bit like the UK's Sun newspaper and contains a lot of 'blood, guts and gore' stories. The stories provide a peek into Thai society and offer a view that is often hidden from foreigners since many of these stories don't make it into the English press.
I hope you find them interesting.
