Flood-hit Thais warned of reptiles in waters

Many people fear moving to evacuation centres after warnings of escaped crocodiles and deadly spitting snakes.

     
    As the floods in Thailand crawl through the suburbs of its capital, swallowing streets, homes and businesses, residents have been warned to watch out for escaped crocodiles and deadly spitting snakes.

    Many people who have lost their homes do not want to leave and move to evacuation centres because they are afraid to go into the floodwaters.

    Teams have been formed to hunt the reptiles, so far managing to catch a few crocodiles in some areas.
