Old Thai capital flooded after river bank breaks
BANGKOK (AP) - A river bank has collapsed in Thailand's old capital of Sukhothai, inundating the city a year after floods covered large areas of the country.
Authorities said on Tuesday there were no reports of injuries but 6,700 people in the riverside city have had their houses flooded.
Disaster official Anusorn Kaewkangwan said floodwaters were as high as one metre. Workers used sandbags to hold back water from the Yom River that burst through the embankment.
Sukhothai was the capital of an ancient kingdom and its monuments and temples are listed by Unesco as a World Heritage site.
