Thailand cleans up after record floods

About two million Thais still affected as water recedes and rebuilding efforts get under way.

    Almost four months after Thailand's worst floods in half a century, people in the suburbs of Bangkok are still waist deep in water as clean-up operations get under way.

    Residents of the capital say they are paying the price for the government's efforts to keep the inner part of the city dry.

    In some areas, the government has offered households $150 for repairs, but this aid has not yet been extended to everyone.
