The Bangkok Post reports:
Police yesterday blew up a motorcycle that had been left at Chiang Rai airport for days, as a security precaution.Maybe not from the airport, but if I were Mr. Atchawit, I'd be hitting up my British "friend" for some cash.
Atchawit Sornsriwichai, 46, a local plasticsware producer, later told a briefing arranged by police that the motorcycle belonged to him. A British friend had taken it to the airport several days ago and left it there before boarding a flight to Bangkok. Mr Atchawit said he understood authorities needed to ensure passenger safety. He would not demand any compensation.
