SR’s correspondent shouts to a man across the river, at the border with Myanmar.
At the border between Myanmar and Thailand, thousands of people have gathered on a river. They are fleeing the intensifying fighting between Myanmar’s junta and armed resistance groups.
But few manage to cross the border because the Thai authorities do not want to let in the refugees from the neighboring country.
The official reason is fear that they will bring covid infection into Thailand – according to other sources, it is because they do not want to support themselves with the military junta.
