Thailand closes island to tourists

Thailand closes island to tourists
Thai authorities have decided that the island of Koh Tachai off the west coast of Thailand is to be closed to tourists indefinitely to prevent the island's fragile nature being destroyed.

According to Tunya Netithammakul, Thailand's conservation director, the island has become such a popular tourist destination that the nature on the island is about to be destroyed.

The ban does not go into effect immediately, however, so tourist are still allowed to visit.

But from October 15 it will no longer be allowed for tourists to visit the island.

- By closing the island it will make it possible to rehabilitate the nature of the island before it's too late, said Netithammakul to the Bangkok Post.

The last official report that showed the proportion of the criminals who were foreigners, was published in 2005. After that, it has not been possible to obtain new, updated figures.

It has now been definitively established that Esteban Santiago, who opened fire in the baggage claim area of the Fort Lauderdale Airport on January 6, murdering five people, was a convert to Islam.

Police officers who work in so-called "vulnerable areas" must tolerate being subjected to stone throwing. They are therefore not entitled to receive damages after having had stones hurled at them, according to a recent verdict by the Swedish court.
