Schools reopen in flood-ravaged Thailand

Bangkok’s children head off to classrooms scrubbed clean of the mud left behind from record flooding.

Hundreds of children are heading off to classrooms in Bangkok that have been scrubbed clean of the mud left behind from record flooding.

Many schools were forced to close in the Thai capital following the country’s worst floods in half a century.

Five months after the first floods hit, children are now enjoying their first day back at school.
