More dead

I was told, but can not confirm, that 2 more people died from the bus accident. The funeral service for the woman that died in the crash happened today.. The border was shut down, but I guess the military kind of turned their heads and allowed the temple to open its back gate which opens up into Burma so Burmese people could attend the funeral.

Apparently the border is shut down for a different reason than I had thought. A paramilitary group aligned with the Burmese army abducted 2 Thai border patrol soldiers. Things are quite tense because of this. I just read an article which said the Thai government is expecting the soldiers to be released in the next couple of hours. Hopefully this will cool things out a bit.
