Listen: Border Myanmar Thailand SAT INDEPENDENT

  • 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.
