A faulty gas tank has exploded in the home of a man in Saraphi, south-west of Chiang Mai’s city centre, killing him instantly. The explosion also destroyed half the man’s home. This incident happened over the weekend.

Police rushed to the scene at a house in Nong Pheung, Saraphi. Police entered the home and discovered a man who had been severely mutilated by the explosion. He was declared dead at the scene.

The man who was killed in the blast was identified as 31 year old Warapong Rattanakoon, the sole resident of the house. The explosion was so strong that it destroyed half his house and also caused minor damage to several houses nearby.

The bomb disposal team investigated the explosion to check it was not from something more sinister after police reportedly found electronics and computer hardware that filled every room of the house, with ‘barely any space to sleep.’

Pattaya’s “sex gurus” ordered to remain in detention as they continue fight | The Thaiger

Ten Russian self-appraised ‘sex gurus’ at the centre of a sex-techniques course held in Pattaya in February have been ordered to remain in detention by the Pattaya Court.

The Thai News Agency are reporting that eight of the ten involved in offering the course appeared in court at the end of last week. The Court asked if they admitted their crimes – they all denied it. The eight also informed the Court that they had instructed lawyers to fight their cases. They were then taken back to jail to await their next day in court.

One person is charged with overstay, three with illegal entry and all ten, “working without a work permit”.

They were arrested on February 26 in a Pattaya Sai 2 Road hotel where they were allegedly conducting courses on sex techniques to 43 Russians who had paid 20,000 baht each.

The group were led by 35 year old “Alex Leslie” and “Nastya Rubka”. Nasty (aka Anastasia Vashukevich) later tried to trade her freedom for information about meddling in the US elections claiming she had connections with Russian oligarchs.

The location of Alex and Nastya is not mentioned in the TNA story but they are understood to remain in detention in Bangkok whilst investigations in to their claims continues.

“Not for sale at any price” – Mu Pa Academy VP | The Thaiger

In the wake of 13 of their young footballers being rescued from the Tham Luang caves, TNA reports that some of the world’s biggest football clubs are showing interest in actually buying the Mu Pa football academy.

But the club’s vice president and manager Kittipong Intaechai says, despite the interest, his club is not for sale at any price.

Mr Intaechai notes the purpose of the academy is to help improve the lives of local boys in Chiang Rai through playing football, not to make money. Mr Intaechai is also warning the public about buying ‘Wild Boar’ souvenirs. In the aftermath of the rescue many souvenirs have been created that include the logo and name of the Wild Boar team.

“These have not been produced by the club but instead by people hoping to cash in on the back of the success of the rescue operation.”

While none of the clubs supposedly interested in buying the Wild Boars were named in the TNA report, teams from the around the world have offered support and gifts to the boys following their rescue from the cave.

German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich recently sent well wishes to the boys along with 13 replica jerseys which have ‘Moopa Academy’ printed on the back.

Manchester United previously invited the boys to their Old Trafford stadium and Carrington training base, while Portugal’s Benfica has also offered the boys an all expenses paid trip to train at its academy in Seixal, near Lisbon.
