Thai official admits to flood mismanagement

The government’s top water resources expert has acknowledged mismanagement of the flood disaster which has killed more than 600 people since July.

Anond Snidvongs, an adviser in the ministry of science and technology, said: “I admit that from my job that I’m doing, I admit that the communication that we have is still less than we should have done.”
