Recommended Posts

Thai authorities have repatriated 10 out of 27 of their nationals who lost their lives at the deadly Poipet fire, located near the border city of Aranyaprathet. They said that 26 out of the 27 were killed in the fire while one lost his life after being transported to Thailand. Thai authorities were also reportedly struggling to cope with the congestion at another checkpoint to keep trade between the two countries flowing.


An assistant to the governor of Sa Keo province, Chanathip Lhokmanee was quoted by Thai media as saying that the 27 Thai nationals were identified to have been killed in the fire which engulfed the Grand Diamond City Hotel and Casino as of 3pm on Friday. He said that 26 of them died in Poipet and one after being transported back to Aranyaprathet.


Hospitals in Aranyaprathet have treated at least 12 people with injuries including burns, broken bones and respiratory issues. Thawattachai Boonsaeng, an Aranyaprathet district official at the coordination centre set up to help Thais affected by the tragedy said 10 bodies have been transported to Aranyaprathet.
