Thailand cracks down on human smugglers

Thai police reassigned and barbed wire put up at Malaysian border to help stop traffickers.

    Thailand's government has stepped up its efforts to stop human trafficking on its southern border.

    Recently, there have been dozens of arrest warrants issued and more than 50 police have been reassigned to assist an investigation into human trafficking networks that smuggle many Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar.
