Samut Prakan woman bit by snake while using the toilet

A python bit a woman on her butt and finger while using the toilet at a home in Samut Prakan, southeast of Bangkok.

Criminal Court reverses decision to close down some Thai media

Today was a win for Thai media companies after some authorities had attempted to close them down amid the current pro-democracy protests.
