Because of the pouring rain it was difficult to say whether there were tears on the faces of the forest "encroachers" in Krabi's Plaipraya district as they faced a crackdown by about 800 armed personnel on Monday.
The killing of two Pathumwan vocational students on Thoet Damri Road on Friday evening was indeed a brazen and audacious act.
